Rock Island Armory 1911-A1 .38 Super 5" Nickel 9+1 
by Joseph F
Date Added: Thursday 17 May, 2012
I love this gun. I picked up my RIA 38 super today and took it out to the range this morning. My first three shots at 15 yards fit in a quarter sized area. Wow! I have never been this accurate with any of my other pistols. I stepped over to the 25 yard range and my first shot was within one inch of the tiny bullseye.
When I originally ordered my Rock Island from Buds I made and mistake and thought I was ordering a 45ACP 1911. I hadn't ever heard of the 38 super round and trying to cancel the order but it had already shipped. I'm so glad I ended up with this caliber after I did some research. It's a great round and my range stocks it at a price of only $20 per box.
The Fit and finish are absolutely beautiful. Several people at the range wanted to check it out. I put some diamond checkered grips on the gun for a better hold and I'm very happy with this purchase. Did I mention that I love this gun?
