The RIA 1911 GI is a great weapon for the price. The slide to frame fit is very tight with a barely detectable wobble when trying oscillate the slide in one hand while firmly gripping the frame in the other. I give it five stars for the quality of the weapon in terms of how low the price is. The finish isn't the greatest though. Its pretty good on the exterior of the weapon but the barrel and other internal parts wore heavily after one range outing. Ejecting brass is leaving little gold flecks in the finish near the chamber that do not come off with cleaning. The stainless steel chamber area of the barrel visible from the outside of the weapon also has terrible machine marks on it as well. It looked like someone took an abrasive wire wheel across an area that had already been polished.As far as triggers go it has very little take up, but becomes gritty and difficult to judge when it will break. I don't really mind any of these things though because I bought the weapon to learn how to smith 1911s.

What can I say, it's a great weapon! Functions perfectly, had no ftf's or fte's in over 500 rounds fired through it. Very accurate right out of the box, even though you need to completely clean it when you get it (it's wrapped in a plastic bag and soaked with oil), but once you do, it will not disappoint you. Bought a bunch of 7 round mags from Sarco for it (had to do a slight modification to the mag catch slots on the mags to get them to lock in using a dremel tool) and haven't had any problems with it. Used reloaded and factory ammo, fmj's, hp's and no problems with it feeding or ejecting. Great gun for the price.

Nice basic 1911. Finally fired it this weekend and it worked like it supposed to.

this 1911 is a great one if they took the Ria of the side and put kimber on it you would pay 1000 or more cant go wrong with this one and you can use it and not be afraid to scratch it up.
