This is my first 1911. I researched 1911's for quite a while on youtube, social media and freinds that own them. Didn't want to go to expensive on my first 1911 and decided on this. So far, I'm not disappointed at all. It came with the rubber grips and wood grips. I installed the rubber grips because it just feels better in my hand. Cleaned all the shipping grease off, frog lubed the slide and frame rails, oiled everywhere else and put 5 mags though it the first outing. No jams of any kind and it's really fun to shoot and very accurate. I did put some orange paint on the front sight to make it stand out a bit. The all black front sight makes it hard to see when shooting at dark targets like steel. Great gun! Thanks to budsgunshop for making it a smooth process. Next will be the same gun, but in 10mm.

This is one of my favorites to shoot it is heavy-duty heavier than my colt1911 has great feel and sights.. only problem you cant completely tear it down to clean the rod or tube that has spring around it is too long to remove. Its odd havent seen that before.other than that its great and great price. I would buy again

Gun came with both the back rubber(pictured) and wooden(actually on gun when got it) grips. The gun has functions flawlessly (only 50 rounds so far) seems well built though it is my first 1911 so cant compare it to other 1911s. So far i love the gun, and only issue is the sights(front sight post too tall), but i plan to change them anyways. Would defiantly buy another probably in 9mm so i have one in both calibers.

First order from Bud\'s. Ordered on Sunday Monday was Columbus day Rock Island 514321 arrived Friday. Super quick shipping. The Rock Island 1911 took it out and shot aprox 75 rounds through it. Shooting it with my Springfield RO and Sig tacops. Truthfully the Rock wasn\'t in the same league as the Springfield or Sig. It also was several hundred cheaper. A couple of jams but when I went to the Springfield or Sig magazine that ended. I was shooting reloads 330 grain lead round heads and with the better mags it feed fine. Sights are fair at best. Again for 458.00 a outstanding value. I will definitely buy from Buds again not sure If I will buy another Rock Island or not but again for the money not a bad weapon.

JUST received my RIA a few minutes ago. I had to leave it at the FFL for their gunsmith to fix a manufacturing error. The lower screw for the right side grip was just spinning...the die was too large for the hole they drilled so the threads on the screw weren\'t catching. It was noticed when I was swapping out the wood grips for the rubber grips while standing at the counter. My FFL is my \"home\" range and delivery point. Additionally, the slide release is WAYYYYYY too forward on the gun. I have large hands and still couldn\'t reach it comfortably....thus I am having them put a longer slide release. Other than those 2 things the gun looked great, the action and slide itself not bad at all. Bud\'s had nothing to do with this, and their record for speedy delivery and customer service is flawless. For the price of the gun, I kind of anticipated something to go amiss, and thankfully the costs to correct it are nominal. Would I buy another Rock Island? Probably. I will know to be more diligent on the features, and not so concerned about the difference in price to go to the next level. A lot of my friends are avid .45 carriers and shooters. Most every one of them has done mods on them, so I just chalk it up to doing the same.
