This is a very nice gun.The finish was good and the rubber grips felt really nice.It ate various types of 45 acp ammo without a hitch.This is my third RIA and i highly recommend this one.Buds was awesome as usual.

Nice looking gun for a nice price, but after about 700 rounds through mine, with many different brands of ammo, and several different brands of magazines (including the mag supplied) I have consistent FTF problems with this pistol, using only hardball, on the order of one failure per about 50-70 rounds. The gun is accurate and fun to shoot, but very unreliable. Packaging was meager and it did not come with the proper instruction manual for this model.

don\'t pay for a name.... Rock island is the best 1911 on the market for the money. I used to be one of those \" colt is the only 1911\" guys. then I shot this rock. no misfires, no ftf, no fte. no jams period. unless you like spending your money on your ego, GO WITH THE ROCK! I had a 1991 beautiful piece of colt, paid 300 more and it was not even close to this one. remember 1911\'s are made for round nose ammo and you\'ll never go wrong!!! ( unless of course you want to spend your time and money doing extra work!) Buds was great as always! fast ship! great price! Thanks Bud\'s!!!

Lovely, high quality finish. Sights are a little hard to see, especially the front. Might want to go after market with them after you receive the firearm. 100 rounds through it, and only 1 FTF (manual says it has a 500 round break in period). A beautiful weapon that looks like it costs $800. Can't go wrong with it for the price.

This is one beautiful pistol! The finish is top notch...can't find a blemish anywhere!
They've moved the Logo to the back section of the slide which seems a bit more high-end than before!
The gun cycles perfectly with zero failures to extract, or go into battery.
I'm not sure why anyone would pay more for another brand when the RIA is virtually perfect!
