Great little gun. This is my first order form Bud's online, will not be my last. I really like the gun, you cannot beat the bang for the buck. I have been looking to purchase a compact 1911 for a project gun; I am pleased with it so far. I have ran about 100 rounds through it at the range without a single FTE or FTF, it has worked flawlessly so far. I plan on putting at least 500 through it before I carry it, but if it continues to operate at the level of efficiency; it will be what I carry for a long time. One more note, the gun pictured is not exactly what I received, the received gun only has the RIA logo discreetly located on the rear of the slide, not plastered bill board style on the whole slide; definitely a nice bonus.

Right out of the box, with only a wipe down from a rage to remove excess oil and grease this pistol ate 200 rounds of FMJ like a chocoholic goes through Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. No FTF's, stovepipes or FTE's. Will be buy more RIA's in the future.

The RIA Compact m1911 I received from bud's arrived in fine shape. It was well packaged like all the firearms that I've purchased from Bud's have been and it arrived in the blink of an eye from the date of order. After 300 rounds it lives up to all its hype and billing as a good addition to your carry inventory as well as for home defense. It's good crisp hand feel...ease of operation and eye appeal makes this a proud member of the line known at m1911.

Bud's always offers a smooth transaction...price, updates and shipping! Thank you! This is my first Rock Island 1911. I unboxed it at the range, cleaned it up and put 50 rounds through it. Every shot was placed where I wanted it, no issues with the function of the gun. You can tell by handling and field stripping the gun that it's a very well made piece. I like the finish and the stock wood grips. For me, this is a gun that I will keep, carry and pass along to my son.

I am really happy with this firearm...........I have other 1911s ( full size GI model) and this is the pick of the litter. I ran about 130 rounds thru it today using a bunch of different loads....this gun ate 'em all up. Had one stove pipe on the last round of one magazine but I think it was the load......it was a re-load. . At first I was leery of the manufacturer, but I am a convert. I'm gonna make this my primary every day carry. The 5 ring was blown out with double taps, had to use a different point of aim........... I'll be looking at future Rock Island purchases, guaranteed. Good quality, reasonable price are hard to beat.
