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!

Got my RIA today. Yes it was oiled up well. That's a good thing. After cleaning took her out. 200 rounds later not one problem or hickcup. I love this gun. I have Colts , Kimbers , and SA 1911s. This RIA is just as well built . This is a quality pistol. I got this as a cheap 1911 for camping and hunting. Really don't wanna drag my 1000$ 1911s in the woods. This thing is a tack driver. Sweet trigger pull at just a hair under 4 pounds from factory. The only thing I call cheap on this gun is the price. What a steal for this pistol at this price. Let my brother shoot it. He is sold. He likes it better than his Kimber. Buds is the only place to buy online. Price, service, quality, and fast shipping. And this is all coming from a guy that already had nine cherry 1911s. Now I have ten. Awesome gun at an awesome price.

Got my Rock in today. Arrived with the wood grips on the gun but also included the rubber rips in the case - nice little bonus having 2 sets of grips. Buds was great, from order date to arrival was 8 calendar days - can't complain about that being this is my first time ordering from Buds. Have to say the RIA is everything Armscor and the reviews claim it is. Very tight well made 1911. I field stripped the gun, just to take some of the oil off, and sent 150 rounds through the gun with the factory mag. I put 50 of low cost, medium and higher end range ammo each. Didn't have a single FTE with FMJ brass - I had one FTE with Federal aluminum but after that the gun performed flawlessly. Straight from the box the gun is very accurate. Honestly, you simply can not get more value for your money on a 1911 than this gun.

Bought on 3/24 received 3/26. This pistol is PERFECT for those not wanting to spend 1000$ on a 1911. I've only been able to put about 100 rounds through the weapon so far, but it functions pretty well. I had 1 FTF, but it was not from the stock mag. This gun was absolutely soaked in oil when I got it out of the case, but I won't complain about good lubrication. Took it home and cleaned her up and took her for a spin. VERY Impressed so far. Will be putting quite a few more rounds through it in the weeks to come. Will update with more info if my review changes. Also, I didn't see it on the page anywhere, but this gun came with an extra set of black grips along with the wood. Happy for a little bonus !

Great pistol. I've had it for a couple of years now and realized I didn't review it when I first bought it from Buds. No issues with the gun jamming and its accurate. Nice pistol and nice price!

I bought a pair of these guns. One for myself and one as a Xmas present for my son. I have owned many 1911's. We hadn't got to shooting them yet. But have disassembled and cleaned/lubed. Fit and function is very nice. Well constructed and well made. I expect great things from these 1911's...
