Customer Reviews 3 Customer Reviews Average 4.7 out of 5 Randy R RIA is building amazing pistols for the money! This .38 Super is pure "spec" when it comes to being all steel where steel is "authentic," and this is true of all the "GI series" models!
Fit and finish is superb, as it function. These pistols simply do NOT jam!
The .38 Super has the edge as it were when it comes to mechanical functioning and does so with boring regularity.
The .38 Super is the round John Moses WANTED to build from day one...and the popularity of the 9x19 "proves" the "rightness" of J.M. Browning's thinking!
At Bud's prices, EVERYONE should be snapping up RIA products as fast as possible!
I've shot about 400 rounds through my RIA .38 Super and it has yet to malfunction in any way. Granted this is what we "expect" from a Glock, but this is also what we generally do NOT expect nor receive from 1911 type pistols. Rock Island Armory is "setting the curve" so to speak...I now own three...two in .45 ACP and the .38 Super and all have functioned with 100% reliability since new!
The Parkerized finish is spotlessly applied. Slide-to-frame fit is perfect...even feels "lapped" onto the frame. Trigger action is superb...maybe, MAYBE 5# and on the Tactical ZERO perceptible movement.
Bud's offers a generous lay-away program that makes buying guns EASY!
Don't let the price fool you...BUY the RIA brand at $200-$500 LESS than domestic and ENJOY that it will have a failure rate LOWER than other name-brands! 2 months ago Paul G Very pleased with this weapon. The finish is great and the fit is fantastic. It's accurate and smooth and a heck of a lot of fun to shoot. I've got 1911s that cost twice as much that don't function as slick as this does. The shell casings didn't have a mark on them and this is the only 1911 I've got that I can use the slide release to release the slide without having to use two hands. Could be a lighter recoil spring. Don't know, but it functioned flawlessly first time out. Highly recommended. 6 months ago Show More Reviews...
