This pistol is superb. You can't beat a 1911 for 450 ish dollars that just plain works. Got it yesterday and went to the range and put 100 rounds through it with no issues at all. It fed Federal 230gr FMJ ammo perfectly fine. The gun did come drenched in oil and is somewhat a pain to get it all cleaned up but it's totally worth it. Mine came with the updated rubber grips instead of the wood grips and the small RIA logo on the rear of the slide instead of the huge billboard on the side which I am completely happy with. I was going to replace the wood grips anyway and either throw them away or use them as kindling for my next bonfire. But now I don't have to worry about it. I absolutely love the look of this gun! It did seem to shoot about 2-3 inches low at 7yds. Could just be me getting used to the sights. Wasn't long though before I was hitting dead center or at least roundabouts. The front blade site is fine in my opinion but I will definitely be looking into a rear sight that can be adjusted for windage and elevation. I will be ordering another RIA 1911 Tactical in 9mm for my wife here soon in the coming weeks. Great product, great feel, great reliability, great look. You won't be disappointed!

This 1911 is a great bargain. It is well fitted and the new rubber grips being used are much more comfortable than the old wood grips. I can't complain about anything on this pistol. Great bargain priced 1911!

Great gun for the money. A lot of features only found on more expensive guns. A few after market upgrades and it shoots like a $1000 gun.

Bought this auto from Buds, it was my first purchase with them and what a great experience. I should have been shopping here before. Yes, it took awhile for it to ship but once shipped it arrived in 2 days. I can't complain about that since the item shipped for free. I never have been a 1911 fan but decided a standard 1911 would be nice, something I could use as a work gun. I was going to buy the standard until I saw this one and for the money and what you get, you can't beat the price. If I had to buy again I would buy the same gun. I purchased it for $471 and it ran within a week for $461. I put a claim into buy/safe and got a $10. check back with their 30 day low price guarantee. So, if you are on the fence and aren't sure about this auto and Buds Gun Shop or the buy/safe guarantee it is time to get off the fence. Thanks to Buds and Buy/safe for your business.

Very happy with my RIA tactical. After cleaning off the shipping liube and relubing it with froglube, it has been rock solid. Eats every ammo that I've tried in it, and is amazing to shoot. I've got over 600 rounds thru it now without a single issue. Has been more reliable than the ruger 1911 a friend got around the same time. Mine was purchased in December 2013, and has the full billboard logo on the side. I like the way it looks.
