Howdy i'am new here, i just got my SR1911 that i had on order from a company called KYGUNCO.COM there customer service rep said that they got in 30 and expect another 30 in a few weeks, i prepaid on mine months ago and got it for $649.99 the customer service person said that they had them as a unadvertised in stock pistol, i also was told there was a price increase for the other SR 1911's, i did not ask about the prices on the other SR1911's they had --> just a heads up to anyone looking for one.

Welcome to the forum. Thanks for posting this. I have currently moved on and have spent my "SR1911 fund" on a S&W M&P 15-22 and toys for it. I was looking hard for awhile, but then I got really addicted to an AR platform in .22 so it bumped the SR1911 down a slot. I'd still like to have one some day, but I'm putting it on the backburner for now.

That is actually a decent price. $110 under MSRP.

I definitely don't disagree with you as they had already sold a ton at that price. There are plenty of people that will buy them at that price, and I don't blame them at all. What ultimately made me say no was the fact that they wanted $45 to ship so I would have been out 690+45+20(transfer) and that is more than I wanted to spend. If I could have had it for 690, I would have snatched it up. For now, I've moved on, but I'd like to have one eventually. My LGS has one trickle in every once in awhile for $611, so I'll probably just wait until my number comes up.

How can any of this be price gouging? It is your money. No one is forcing you to hand them your wallet. Are they making a great profit? Certainly. Supply and demand. No supply and a bunch of demand. My feeling is if you don't like the price-PASS. I won't overpay. I don't have one but I will some day. There are to many other products that are getting my recreation money.

Paying over $750 is gouging? That is a laugh. Good firearm or even better; Highly regarded by a strong percentage of viewers, reviewers and owners; Standing orders for multiple years of production..........So? Paying up to MSRP is simply a buyer's choice. I suggest that gouging is better termed for a new GMC full dress Suburban which 'WINDOWS" AT OVER SIXTY THOUSAND DOLLARS. Think about that.........OH! Almost forgot....The SR1911 is built in a non union shop in a right to work state-----ARIZONA 8) :D
