Great pistol. I've had it for a couple of years now and realized I didn't review it when I first bought it from Buds. No issues with the gun jamming and its accurate. Nice pistol and nice price!

I bought a pair of these guns. One for myself and one as a Xmas present for my son. I have owned many 1911's. We hadn't got to shooting them yet. But have disassembled and cleaned/lubed. Fit and function is very nice. Well constructed and well made. I expect great things from these 1911's...

I've been a 1911 fan and shooter for quite awhile. This pistol is very well made and shoots as well as any Springfield or kimber that I have shot. And for the price I would rather have 2 RIA 1911s over one pricy pistol any day. First couple mags shot with some reloads had a couple feed problems. But straight out of the box it shot blazer 230 grain like butter. I totally recommend this pistol

I have had this pistol for years. It has NEVER failed to fire. It has NEVER jammed. the RIA 1911 is a cheap and reliable weapon. It is very accurate and very smooth for a 45acp. Buy this pistol right now, I promise you will not regret it !

I bought this firearm based off of the reviews listed here on BUDS.

UNFORTUNATELY after less than 300 rounds my ambidextrious safety completely failed to operate, I sent it to Armscor for warranty repair and they had it for a month. When it returned home, out of the box, the safety worked just fine. I then took it to the range a few weeks later and was very unpleasantly surprised to notice, after only 40 rounds (5 mags), the safety had failed yet again. I am currently in communication with Armscor to try and remedy the situation. I will update this post at the conclusion of the situation.

Either I got a one in a thousand faulty firearm or RIA needs to redesign how their safeties are engineered, the pistol shoots great but I am very unimpressed that something as vital as the safety could fail in such a short amount of time and use.
