This product is a standout amongst Armscor's catalog. This gun is in direct competition with Colts Defender and New Agent, I went with this Gun over Colts offering because of the all steel construction and heft, 3.5" barrel and low profile sights witch let you look over the top of the gun if you need to. I find Novac styles sights are too intrusive for most applications and Bomar sights to be ludicrous. This gun has a very slick look and feel, they took the time to dehorn the muzzle and give it a great finish. Love the blond furniture. On my 8th trip to the Philippines I went to the Armscore Manufacture and shooting range and I can tell you these people are serious about their 1911’s on my way back driving in Manila I’ve never seen so many IPSC bumper stickers in my life, The U.S. has some catching up to do.

Received this from Buds a couple of weeks ago. Great price, fast shipping, very easy shipping to Preferred FFL. This was my first purchase from Buds and it won't be my last.

RIA 1911-A1 CS, .45ACP
Yes, had to completely clean it up, very well lubed in shipping oil. I was told by my FFL that I should replace the factory magazine which I intend to do, how ever I did not have any issues with it the first time out. I put 150 rounds through it (230 grain FMJ) not one FTF or FTE. The pistol functioned perfectly. I will be replacing the grips though, the wood is not ideal for grip and I have very large hands. I really like this gun.

Awesome little pistol. Ordered on Friday morning and received it on Tuesday at noon (my LGS is not open on Mondays). Upon my pre-acceptance inspection of the pistol, I noted that it was in NEW condition sealed in a plastic bag with a TON of shipping grease/lube. It took forever to clean it all out, but is much better than rust on a new gun. Lockup is tight and I see no play or un-necessary movement in the slide to frame fit. Trigger is very crisp and very close to 'breaks like a glass rod'. I personally prefer roll triggers on 1911s (easier to master during sustained fire) so this one will likely spend some time on the bench, but the factory trigger is above average for a gun at this price point and is more than serviceable out-of-the-box. All other gaps (MSH to frame, grip safety to frame, etc.) are thin and uniform. Overall, I find the build quality of this gun surpasses the price; it's one heck of a deal.

Well first of all I wanna say this RIA CS 45 was exactly what i was looking for, my other 45 was ok during the winter for conceal carry but just to big for the summer. I been wanting a compact 45 a long time but just couldnt afford the high prices of Colt &; Springfield &; a few others, & w/ the quality of how good a RIA & there repitation & nearly half the price, you just cant beat it. The finish is ok but is not an issue @ all since this will be my primary weapon for CCW, I did have alot of concerns @ first about buying a weapon online since not able to @ least have the weapon in my hand to see how it feels especially since I have big hands, but I haveto say it feels right. The gun shoots great & I have had no issues jams or no feeds @ all, of course I only use 230 gr FMJ Round ball ammo. I also wanna say how excellent the service &; the speedy delivery I received here @ Buds, & there tracking was dead on & I was able to know purdy much where my weapon was @, & you cant beat there prices either. I would not hesitate to purchase another weapon threw yall & would also recommend to others.yall are defently 5 stars in my book, it was a pleasure doin business w/ yall, Thanks again, Tim
