I have shot this gun several times and it is a extremely well-built gun have had problems with the magazines but for the price to go out and shoot is acceptable so thank you buds for having such a decent price I hope it stays that way so I can spend all my money through buds instead of having to spend money on various sites I hate that you guys have been excellent with customer service and I hope to do business with Buds and again and in general thank you guys

Immediately put white punisher grips on it to improve the plain looks. Ran a 100 rounds of hard ball through it with no problems. This is my second .38 super and magazines are interchangeable. Great shooter and as accurate as I can shoot!

Buds service was great as usual. No fuss and fast shipping is the norm. I have 4 other 1911s and this was my first Rock Island and first 38 Super. I'm very happy with it. I've run 50 rounds of factory ball ammo and 200+ rounds of my reloads with home cast, coated, lead bullets through it without a bobble of any kind. It's also very accurate. The RI isn't as "refined" as some other 1911s but it's a fine shooter for the money.

Good service by buds as usual. Pistol has nice fit and fired 100 rounds of fmj ammo no problems. The mag that came with the pistol is pretty crummy. I tried two different brands of hollow point ammo (the new sig ammo 125 grains and 147 grain Buffalo bore), neither of which would feed properly. Both got stuck in mag and would not feed after the 2nd or 3rd round. I tried three different magazines including mec-gar and pachmyer mags to no avail.

Well; It took a little longer than I'm used to with Buds. 12 days to get my 38 Super 1911. I'm used to 2 or 3 days. But--I understand about the weather. After inspection, I took my new 1911 home and began the cleaning process! The gun was well packed in Cosmoline and packed very well in the plastic RIA case. Fit and finish is superb for a firearm in this price range! While in the cleaning process. I replaced the factory grips with "Double Diamond" walnut grips, OOOOOH what a difference! This one rivals my Colt Mil Spec in looks!! The action is smooth, with no glitches. A little fingernail polish on the front sight solves the "Mil-Spec" sight issue, and she is ready for the range! 200 rounds without a hitch! No FTF, No FTE, nothing but hitting where I aimed the gun!!! This is not my only 1911,(I have 6) I was going to buy another Colt--BUT--I opted to go with RIA after spending a little time researching their line. I'm glad I did. I saved about $400. No I won't run thousands of rounds through this gun, but, I will shoot her and I will have fun!! Isn't that what it's all about anyway?

Shoots well out of the box. No malfunctions with over 150 rounds. A well made 1911 at a great price.
