I ordered this rock island armory after looking around for a 1911.I have to say I couldn't be happier with this gun.I will tell you that the first 10 rounds didn't go perfectly right out of the box,but after that, she was flawless.She does shoot a little low though but not that low.The shipping was a little slow and the updates were not up to date,but hey,I saved a hell of a lot off retail dealing with Bud's.Also,the guide rod is full length so the spring cap(if that's what you call it)doesn't have a cap on it.Thank you bud's!!

I just recently purchased (April 2014) this gun and was able to get to the range to try it. It performed excellently with 200 rounds and once I got used to the sights, I was able to put up some nice groupings and I am not a marksman by any means. I used the original magazine and had purchased a couple more online and all three functioned properly and left the gun slide locked open after last round.
Considering this is only the second gun I have shot (my first being a Sig Sauer P226 9mm), I enjoyed shooting it and did not have any jams, etc. It is the first gun my 12 year old son has shot and he loved it! (Video games being no comparison!)
Although Buds uses a picture of the gun on the website with the wood grips, my gun came with rubber grips! I was very happy when I opened the RIA gun case and it didn't have the over sized wood grips. I also like the extended beaver tail for a better grip and to keep my hand away from the slide.
After owning the Sig, there are only two drawbacks to this gun. One is that it does not have a decocking lever but as far as I've seen, 1911's never come with one. Second, the sights are not marked for night vision in any way.
This gun is definitely a very good buy for a .45 to have for home defense and the range, especially if you don't want to put out a $1,000 or so for a gun.
Buds costumer service was very good as was the local FFL that I had used! I will definitely be looking at this website for future gun purchases.

This pistol is superb. You can't beat a 1911 for 450 ish dollars that just plain works. Got it yesterday and went to the range and put 100 rounds through it with no issues at all. It fed Federal 230gr FMJ ammo perfectly fine. The gun did come drenched in oil and is somewhat a pain to get it all cleaned up but it's totally worth it. Mine came with the updated rubber grips instead of the wood grips and the small RIA logo on the rear of the slide instead of the huge billboard on the side which I am completely happy with. I was going to replace the wood grips anyway and either throw them away or use them as kindling for my next bonfire. But now I don't have to worry about it. I absolutely love the look of this gun!

It did seem to shoot about 2-3 inches low at 7yds. Could just be me getting used to the sights. Wasn't long though before I was hitting dead center or at least roundabouts. The front blade site is fine in my opinion but I will definitely be looking into a rear sight that can be adjusted for windage and elevation.

I will be ordering another RIA 1911 Tactical in 9mm for my wife here soon in the coming weeks. Great product, great feel, great reliability, great look. You won't be disappointed!

This 1911 is a great bargain. It is well fitted and the new rubber grips being used are much more comfortable than the old wood grips. I can't complain about anything on this pistol. Great bargain priced 1911!
