If you are reading this, you are considering a purchase. I can tell you that I am 100% stoked on this gun. Came greasy like everyone says, but I just wiped it down and put 4 mags through it. Gun cycles fine (230 gr Ball) and the recoil is surprisingly manageable. Truthfully, I was a little worried that it was going to be a powerful self defense package, but no fun to shoot. All wrong. This little rig is really fun to shoot. This one came with the updated RIA rubber grips. All black looks sharp. Slide fit is really tight. I really don't see what $500 extra for a Colt of the K-word gets you other than esthetics...and frankly, this TAC compact looks like what a .45 ought to: mean. People here and on YouTube complain about the blackout sights: I do want to point out that the rear sight does have a circular indention on either side of the notch, ready to accept paint or something like "Glow-on" brand adhesive dots for a high-fiz effect. I even saw one recommendation to try white-out on the front sight and call it done. I used to be a "made in America-only" kind of person, but whatever. These are really great guns and affordable for guys like me with 2 kids in daycare. I'm all in.

Shot my RIA tactical Officer's model today for the fist time 100 rounds. Very accurate. No FTE's. Sights are difficult to see, black on black. Finish isn't very durable.

Just picked my gun up from FFl. Can't see what some of the other reviewers were complaining about having to diaassemble and clean their guns because of grit and cosmoline. Puled my right out of the box and momma couldn't clean it better with a bottle of bleach. Thing was clean, lightly oiled and tight as a virgin. Looking forwat to 1st trip to the range with it.
