Of the ones you've listed, I personally would buy the Ruger also. I wanted one in 2011 when they first came out, but couldn't find one anywhere, so I bought a Springfield Range Officer instead. My neighbor invited a friend of his along on our last range trip whom had purchased an SR1911 before Chirstmas & had not shot it yet. We broke it in for him by shooting 200 rounds without a single failure. It might not be the best 1911 on the market, but it is good enough to have as a carry or self defense pistol in my opinion. I'm not an expert, so take this for what it's worth. At last check I think my thoughts were worth about a penny...at least that is what was being offered.
