If you buy this with the understanding that it is a budget 1911 and not the sexiest 1911 you've ever seen then you'll be pleased! Please don't misunderstand me, the firearm is sexy and functions quite well. Based on the price point and lifetime warranty you can't go wrong here!

I was pleasantly surprised at how fast this firearm shipped. Just as with every other Armscor made 1911 I have come across, this one is great. Very accurate, very reliable. I had it broken in at 150 rounds. Still shooting flawlessly today. Don't be fooled by the price; this is much more gun than it is worth.

The RIA Officers Model is a super pistol. I could not be happier with it. I'm a Police Firearm Instructor, so I shoot alot of different guns. This is my favorite off-duty gun. As with most 1911 pistols, some break in is neccessary. Even so, I've never had a FTF or FTE with this gun. The trigger is excellent. My only mod was to replace the grips with a nice set of VZ Grips. I've purchased several guns from Bud's and they are always on top of their game. Great customer service and lowest prices.

The RIA series of 1911s have long been proven incredibly reliable, particularly at the price point and so far out the gate this officer model has ran as good as any of my Colts. One welcome change is that the new RIAs no longer have the massive rollmark on the slide, instead, they now feature a small logo behind the cocking serrations on the slide(looks laser etched). Aside from that a very clean appearance, and fit/finish seems to be greatly improved from the early model RIA guns that I own. It shipped with a very nice case and one 7rd magazine with base pad, although Wilson Combat mags would be greatly recommended. The only thing which is with all the factory grips on RIA guns, they are horrible and offer no grip whatsoever. A set of VZ grips will easily solve this problem.

All I can say about this thing is that it shoots everything I stuff in it and is very dependable. Like most low priced 1911's the trigger got worked over, now all is well.
