Ordering from Buds was smooth. On time as advertised. FFL handled the paperwork nicely. I just love this gun. I'm not a collector, I'm a plinker and I've always wanted a 1911. This is my first. Whether you consider this a starter gun or not the iron sights are just fine, 9's and 10s from 15 - 20 yards. I like its minimalistic character. No bells, whistles or fancy grips. Several hundred rounds down the barrel and not one misfire or chimney. It's just a fun gun.

This is the second RIA 1911 I've bought from Buds and couldn't be happier. Just like the FS Tac, this gun has performed flawlessly. Next, I will be purchasing their CS. Can't go wrong with either RIA or Buds!
