Works great. I thought I would give a few details for anyone considering what I consider the best deal in a long time.
Some have mentioned malfunctions. This could be spotty QA, I don't know having only fired one gun. It absolutely requires a full de-greasing and cleaning before first use. It comes heavily coated from the factory. I did all of the above and had very good results.
I broke it in with 500 rounds of ball and hollowpoint from five different manufactures (Winchester, Remington, Privi, Herters, Blazer), all 230 grain. Only two qualified FTF at shots #405 and #435. In both cases was using some suspect looking Blazer bulk ammo with rough brass and discoloring over bullet and case, and the factory mag. All other ammo worked 100% with the factory mag; all ammo including Blazer worked 100% with a Sig 1911 mag. The only two malfunctions were with a hot and very dirty gun. Both malfunctions were the second shot meaning the first stripped from the RIA magazine for that string. Again, 100% all day with an after-market mag with any ammo. Also, the RIA mag seems pretty nice, for now I'll suspect the ammo.
The trigger is excellent. Finish very nice parkerized. It came with the subdued company logo vice the “billboard” etching, thanks. Weight and balance very nice, can easily double tap or mag dump at 10 yds into a baseball sized group. GI sights on for elevation and a sight blade or so left @ 25. All ammo brands easily shot into a 4 x 4 “ square at 25 with deliberate aimed fire once I worked out the Kentucky windage.
The grips were a surprise. They and the flathead screws don't look good in the picture and I expected to replace them. In fact they are a nice blonde wood with a satin finish that look nice and feel great.
My only real interest was reliability particularly with Remington HP. I ditched my Springfield Armory 1911 a decade ago as it was an unpredictable paperweight with zero relevant customer support. So I went into this with pretty low expectations, turns out five star in all categories. A good deal at $800, a fantastic deal at $400. YMMV.
