I received the RIA Rock standard 1911 promptly after ordering. The Rock standard 1911 is, ascetically, a well made gun, but not perfect. The finish is beautiful and the wood grips are plain but nice, while the polish on the barrel and guide rod is merely serviceable. Nothing is wrong ascetically that a little time with the dremel and some very fine polish can\'t spruce up. Mechanically it has worked wonderfully so far. I have taken it to the range twice and each time fed 100 rnds of Sellier and Bellot 230gr FMJ with the only problem being one failure to feed the last round in a magazine after about 50 rnds on the second day. That issue only required me to pull the slide back and let it fall forward into battery to keep on trucking. I am very pleased with this purchase, especially with the price, and can\'t recommend this pistol enough to those looking for an entry level 1911. For those who are purchasing their first 1911, or actually anyone who might want a list of tests to perform before excepting the transfer, I recommend searching the web for \'1911 Pistol Inspection Checklist\' and printing out the pdf you find. Remember, no matter who the manufacturer is it\'s always possible to end up with a Monday or Friday gun.

I always wanted a 1911 so I thought I'd give this pistol a shot. It's reliable, never had a FTF, FTE or a malfunction of any kind ( I put 1000 rounds through it). I've read that 1911's don't like hollow points but I put a hundred Remington 230gr hollow points through it without a hiccup. It's a solidly constructed and good looking pistol. Mine had a hairline crack in the rear sights but RIA replaced it under the warranty no problem. It's not that accurate, I get much tighter groups out of my FN FNS45 and my Springfield XD45. The parkerizing wears off easily just from normal holster use. If you really want a 1911 you can't beat this pistol for the price, but, in my opinion, there are much better modern pistol designs out there for the same price (more accurate, lighter, higher magazine capacity, better sights etc)

update, went out to the range today with my RIA 1911 .45ACP. was excellent right out of the box, accurate and NO issues at all. trigger pull was great, but will be changing sights soon! to TRUGLO TFOs...BLUF you can buy the expensive1911s if you have that kind of money, but I would put this gun up against any if them. shot about 200+ rounds of Winchester WB, Tul Ammo, and federal no hiccups at all, highly recommend this gun!

The sights are wretched. I have contacted the manufacturer; but they provided NO DETAILED TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS to replace the sights. I can find NO TECH SPECS to help order replacement sights. It will cost me more than the gun is worth to send this weapon to the Novak people (who could replace the sights properly.) I WOULD NEVER PURCHASE THIS WEAPON -- AS IT IS, WITHOUT PROPER SIGHTS.

Love this M1911! Rock Island Armory lives up to it's rep. Even came with two different grips, black rubber and wood, also has a very nice trigger squeeze. I'm also very satisfied with Bud's Gun Shop's service, website is terrific!
