Received my RIA Officer a few weeks ago and just got some time to shoot it, initial impressions were good. The included box felt cheap and the manual is very brief, you can tell where some of the cost was cut, however the firearm itself felt solid from the get go, no rattle or rough spots.
Pros: Brief range session let me put about 60 rounds of mixed Federal 230 FMJ, PMC 230 FMJ and a few Hornady Critical Defense. No FTF's that could be attributed to the firearm. The kick and rise were very manageable in comparison to a full-size polymer frame .45. Accuracy was surprising, more than likely due to the better than average factory trigger. I'm no pistol marksman but I was able to pattern on a 1 gallon milk jug at 35-40yds.
Cons: The magazine failed 2 times (Act Mag made in Italy) As the slide brought the spent case of the last round back for ejection, the magazine lips would snag and grab onto the brass. It only happens on the last round, and since I had to drop the mag at that point anyway the spent brass would fall out along with the mag, so the mag is still usable but I will be replacing for peace of mind. The stock grips look terrible, I refinished them the same day I got the firearm. With a little sand paper and some nice stain they look decent.
Final thoughts: Get some nice grips, get a few trustworthy mags (most people will do this with any 1911 anyway) and you'll have a reliable, accurate, compact 1911 for under $500 (compared to $700 and up for competitors) I would recommend this firearm to anyone and purchase again given the choice
