Rock Island Armory 51431 1911 FS 8+1 45ACP 5"
by Matt C Date Added: Tuesday 31 July, 2012
I was a Glock man, untill my buddy handed me his Kimber 1911 ultra cary. Not having the budget he has, I ordered the RIA Tactical 1911. Couldn't be happier. Note: They recomend a 500 round break in. I had 2 failure to feed in 200 rounds so far. Both in first 3 magazines. No problems since. My groups reduced by half on my first day to the range. Have carried it every day since. Glock is in the safe...for now. Not going back.

As to the comments of others, sights seem to be slightly off, but who doesn't want to upgrade their sights anyway? Gun was covered in enough oil to fry chicken, but it sure as hell ain't gonna rust in shipping. Shot it without cleaning, and no problems. It is my first parkerized gun, and I'm not impressed, but for the price, I can DuraCoat it. Certainly nothing to complain about.

Get yourself a Hoague grip. I have small hands, and it made a world of difference.

Gonna order the officer's model next month.
