Wanted a carry size 1911 and began looking around. A lot of people telling me, \"Buy a RIA .45, they are inexpensive and made well\". After some research thats exactly what I did. Had some issues with FTE the first couple of hundred rounds. Contacted RIA, sent it back, they polished the ramp, new ejector and haven\'t had an issue since. Customer service was above excellent and they were very nice to deal with. I am looking to buy a full size 1911 and I just might buy RIA again.

Just as everyone says came dripping oil. I\'ve only run 100 rounds thru it . 230 jacket ball and some hydra shoks. Only had one hitch and that was a used mag that I nothing about. shoots a little left at 7 yards. All the edges are pretty square and sharp. fit and finish is good. GI sights kind of hard to see with old eyes. Yes, I will buy another one.

For an entry level 1911 I absolutely love this pistol. The trigger pull is light and crisp straight from the box. It comes with a nice hard case and after a thorough cleaning the action is very smooth. The black on black sights leave a little to be desired but all around not an issue. After 300 rounds I've had no problems. I am very pleased and would highly recommend this pistol.

I'm giving it 5 stars because that's what I expect from RIA. Bud's was fast and efficient as usual. Once I picked it up from my FFL, I field stripped and thoroughly cleaned and lubed it. The trigger breaks right at 4 lbs. with no creep. Of course the GI trigger is not adjustable, so there is a lot of travel. Awesome trigger none the less. I put about 150 rds of 230 gr FMJ, from various manufacturers with 1 FTF. Could have been me, could have been the mag, could be a new gun that's not broken in. Although, it functioned perfectly with the factory ACT mag.With 1 round left in my last mag, the slide locked, and wouldn't release. The firing pin stop had slipped, and caught the hammer. It is currently in Nevada for repair. This is not my first RIA 1911. These are good guns, stuff happens.

In terms of customer service, Buds is the place no other can match. Real staff when you need the extra help. The RIA compact..... I dare to say this pistol shoots hella better than some of the OVERPRICED ones like Colts, Kimber etc. I shot 800 rds for the first time, not a single hiccup. Just function flawlessly. Now is it prettier than the other high price pistols. No it\'s not but sure makeup in accuracy. The finish is not as nice as the others who devote most time ploshing their weapons and order to jack you another $400 bucks. It comes down to this compact does its job so far. Think of this RIA compact as a Toyota Camry. It doesnt matter what the hell is happening to the weather, u know u can rely on it to start everytime. If beauty is not part of your purchase decision, buy this RIA Compact. U will.get one hella deal and enjoy it and not worry if your gonna scratch it like your overpriced pistols. This is truely a blue worker\'s pistols.
