Rock Island Armory 1911 Tactical 45 ACP 5" Parkerized 
by Dave M
Date Added: Thursday 07 June, 2012
Another "win" from Buds, with excellent service and super fast shipping as always! I owned a RIA 1911 GI years ago when they were relatively new to the USA, and the gun was accurate but poorly made. I was sceptical about purchasing another one but through recent years RIA has greatly improved quality control and overall quality of the gun itself. I picked the Tacitical up today and I have to say it is amazing. The fit is tight, and there is virtually no movement between the slide and frame. The finish, though parkerized, is much deeper and darker than previous models, and there were no scratches or scuff marks when it arrived, very nice overall. The slide racks smoothly and the trigger is crisp with very little movement. Upon disassembly I did not find any metal shavings or rough edges, and the machining was very good. All in all this is an excellent 1911 for the price. Potential buyers do not be fooled by the low price and "made in the phillipines", this gun is an amazing value and will serve your purpose well. I am very pleased with this purchase and I look forward to owning more RIA's in the near future. RIA's also come with a lifetime warranty and excellent customer service. Thanks Buds!!
