||The RIA 1911 is an awesome piece for the price. I own several 1911's and couldnt help ignoring the 100th anniversary hype of the 1911 this yea. As a result I bought this RIA 1911.
- functions awesome
- at 15 and 25 yards it gave me awesome groups
- looks fantastic
- came with a 8rd mag!
- amazing price, you cant beat the value
- pistol seemed really dry out of the box, make sure you field clean and oil before use
- seemed like some initial wear, cleaned right up after a little oil
I have spent well over 1,000 for mil spec 1911's and almost feel silly for spending so much. The RIA put over a 100 rounds of junk ammo down range with no feed / jam issues. My spreads were great and the trigger was solid for the price. For under 400 dollars this is a steal. If you need a 1911 on a budget or just want to be a part of the 100th anniversary then try this RIA.
This was my first online purchase of a gun. Buds has a great reputation. I was satisfied, but did not receive the extremely fast shipping like some others did. It shipped late on the last day possible. I just sort of expected it to ship in the first few days because of all the great reviews I read. Maybe I just had some dumb luck?
