Another great purchase from Bud's. The weapon is tight and very accurate for the price. I own several 1911's and the RIA can hang with the best of them.
Bud's blows away the completion on the price and selection.

For the money this is a very nice .45. Factory sights are useless and horrible. Fit and finish were fine and gun shoots well. Only failure was off hand limp wristing to see if I could get it to fail and it stove piped. Major cleaining was needed when it arrives (soaked in oil), other than that it has been a great buy. Buds services as always was top notch.

Got my compact 45 today.Wow looks awesome and what a trigger.Bought this gun to carry added some Hogue finger groove grips and it is a nice little 45.A lot of concerns about the finish,mine was perfect out of the case.Had every intention of having it cera coated if the factory finish starts to show signs of wear.So far very pleased,put a few rounds thru it at the range and no problems.Shoots right up there with my Colt full size,not quite up there with the Kimber but not 1300.00 either.Great little affordable 45,proud to have it in my safe.Thanks Buds

Always read about how fast Buds delivery was and was a bit skeptical. I was all wrong. Ordered this pistol at about 11 PM on a Friday night, had it in my hand early Tuesday morning! Definitely impressed with delivery and with Buds customer service. And there BuySafe guarantee put my mind at ease about making the purchase online. Now to the gun! Comes all covered in oil like I've read, and I mean COVERED in oil! But the way I saw it was better over oiled than not at all. Came with two spent shell casings and an "inspected by" tag with somebody's initials from the factory. The checkered rubber grips are very nice, not generic-looking at all. There are two dot indentations on the rear sights but there is no paint or anything on them. Shake it around and no movement of anything and no sounds of anything moving. Super tight. A few days later took it to the range and I was shooting very tight groups from 20 ft. out and I am very new to the sport. Put about 75 rounds of two different brands of 230 gr FMJ thru it without a hiccup. I had a Taurus PT745 that was a .45 as well and I couldn't hit the broad side of a barn with it. Very happy I got rid of it and bought this instead. The recoil is very manageable as well. Couldn't be happier with this purchase. Recommend to anybody who wants a quality 1911 compact and doesn't have $1000 to spend.
