Excellent gun. A bit stiff on the safety out of the box but broke in very quickly. Shot 200 rounds no problems. The trigger was excellent smooth right from the start.
Works very well with MEC-GAR magazines. Low recoil. Full size guide rod requires a paper clip for field stripping. Overall very pleased.

Worth double the price! Buds shipping was fastest ever. Ordered on Monday and picked up on Friday and that included New Year's Day holiday in that week.
Shot 200 rounds with zero failures the gun has a nice feel and the rubber grips are very comfortable. Metal form mag that came with it is very good and I just ordered a few more. I have guns that cost triple this one and although they might have a very slightly better finish that's really the only thing that's better. I highly recommend this gun to anyone not just someone looking for something cheaper than most 1911s the only negatives I could say are the parkerizing is a little light in some spots and the gun came with a single side safety not ambi as noted in description but I'm fine with both as I'm now going to cericoat this and was planning on removing the ambi safety anyway. I look forward to shooting and carrying this gun as part of my daily rotation.

Their shipping was amazingly fast. I purchased it on Sunday and picked it up on Wednesday. The price was much lower than I had seen it around town too. I haven't fired it yet, but it looks great and is solidly built. I'll definitely shop at Buds again

As usual, the price and shipping were great from Buds. I used the ACH feature for the first time and it did take 5 days for my funds to clear to Buds. Once they had the funds, the gun shipped very quickly to my FFL. Notification was great, I got two or three emails to keep me informed of the process.
Was heavily oiled, and needed more than just a quick rub down prior to shooting the first time. I always clean mine anyway. Trigger is OK for the price, breaks clean. I shot the compact for the first time today, 250 rounds of various loads from 115 gr. FMJ to 147 gr. FMJ. I also mixed one magazine with 4 Speer gold dots to see how they would function. The compact handled all rounds without any issue no FTF or FTE. I used the factory 8 round mag, along with one 9 round STI and one 10 round Chip McCormick mag. All mags functioned easily.

The sights being a black front post need a spot of nail polish for me to more easily pick them up, but the gun shoots really well. With the heft, there is little or no recoil. No muzzle flip, and very easy to get follow up shots on target.

Thanks Buds for keeping one of these in stock! I may have another IDPA/carry gun. For the price this one feels like a real keeper.

This is a fantastic pistol for the price. Comes with a case and one magazine. No frills. I shot 100 rounds of mixed ammo without a failure of any kind. Tulo, American Eagle, Lead Handloads. I would have no reason to believe it won't continue to function flawlessly for many rounds to come.

ordered this on 5/4 from buds and picked it up from my FFL today 5/15. It was very heavily oiled. so much so, it reminded me of when I got my mosin years ago and the cleaning that needed before being able to shoot it. The fit and finish on this is much better than the sub 500 price would suggest. I have Sig, springfield, and magnum research 1911's and the quality of this is very comparable There is absolutely no rattle to this gun at all. The grips are rubber and very soft, but I had a set of VZ ETC grips waiting for it and they look great and fit perfectly. I intend this to be my EDC and for that it will need different sights, as the all black can be difficult to acquire. Took it to the range and fed is 300 rounds of 115 gr FMJ and 50 rounds of hornady critical defense 147 gr and experienced zero failures. Overall I'm very impressed with this for the price. The only downside is that it is advertised as having an ambidextrous safety and that is not the case. I wouldn't hesitate to buy another RIA 1911.

This is my second Rock Island Armory purchase. Both of the weapons have been very reliable with good ammunition. Bud's prices and service are hard to beat. Great guns at a great price.
