I received my RIA Compact M1911A-1 from my FFL yesterday. It shipped on Thursday and I had it after work on Friday. I could not disassemble it for cleaning before I took it to the range today because this gun is TIGHT. I managed to clean the excess machine oil off the exterior and took it to the range. At 5 yards, I was able to put an entire 50 round box of Perfecta 230 grain FMJ into an area about 6 inches in diameter center mass on a police B-5 target after I determined where the first few rounds hit. This gun is accurate, dependable and had surprisingly light recoil and all 50 rounds fired with no problems.
I bought two aftermarket magazines for my pistol to see how they functioned in my new RIA. I bought a 7-round Springfield Armory stainless steel magazine and a 7-round Kimber blued steel magazine. I also checked the reliability of the RIA marked (Italian ACT-MAG) magazine that came with the gun. All three performed reliably with no major problems. The Kimber magazine did have one FTF but that problem was quickly solved by pulling back on the slide and letting it go. (Maybe I limp-wristed that shot). I will need to take the gun to my dad who is a professional gunsmith to see if he can get the very tight slide lock lever out of the gun for disassembly and cleaning.
In fairness to RIA, they do say on the warranty card that a 500 round break-in period is necessary to loosen the gun up. I am VERY pleased with my RIA Compact. If this were a Colt or a Smith & Wesson, this would easily be a $700.00-$800.00 gun. I will certainly recommend Buds and RIA to my friends.

I bought this pistol, my first .45, because of the great reviews it got. The price was a deciding purchase factor, as was the comments about Rock Island's quality. When I went to the gun range the slide would not complete a full cycle. No feeding problems or anything like that but the slide was stopping short of completion. The firing pin stop was hanging up on the frame. Frustrating. I sent the gun back to Rock Island and to their credit, they repaired it beautifully, and within ten days. They replaced several parts.

The gun shoots great now but I can't give it 5 stars because of that initial hangup. Still, it seems to be a very good, well built .45. Bud's is a great, no hassle dealer.....very pleased with them.

Works great. I thought I would give a few details for anyone considering what I consider the best deal in a long time.

Some have mentioned malfunctions. This could be spotty QA, I don't know having only fired one gun. It absolutely requires a full de-greasing and cleaning before first use. It comes heavily coated from the factory. I did all of the above and had very good results.

I broke it in with 500 rounds of ball and hollowpoint from five different manufactures (Winchester, Remington, Privi, Herters, Blazer), all 230 grain. Only two qualified FTF at shots #405 and #435. In both cases was using some suspect looking Blazer bulk ammo with rough brass and discoloring over bullet and case, and the factory mag. All other ammo worked 100% with the factory mag; all ammo including Blazer worked 100% with a Sig 1911 mag. The only two malfunctions were with a hot and very dirty gun. Both malfunctions were the second shot meaning the first stripped from the RIA magazine for that string. Again, 100% all day with an after-market mag with any ammo. Also, the RIA mag seems pretty nice, for now I'll suspect the ammo.

The trigger is excellent. Finish very nice parkerized. It came with the subdued company logo vice the “billboard” etching, thanks. Weight and balance very nice, can easily double tap or mag dump at 10 yds into a baseball sized group. GI sights on for elevation and a sight blade or so left @ 25. All ammo brands easily shot into a 4 x 4 “ square at 25 with deliberate aimed fire once I worked out the Kentucky windage.

The grips were a surprise. They and the flathead screws don't look good in the picture and I expected to replace them. In fact they are a nice blonde wood with a satin finish that look nice and feel great.

My only real interest was reliability particularly with Remington HP. I ditched my Springfield Armory 1911 a decade ago as it was an unpredictable paperweight with zero relevant customer support. So I went into this with pretty low expectations, turns out five star in all categories. A good deal at $800, a fantastic deal at $400. YMMV.

Took to range today first 50 rds had 4 or 5 ftf but the next 100 rds were flawless - very accurate right out of box - nice pistol should come with two clips though
