Awesome little pistol. Ordered on Friday morning and received it on Tuesday at noon (my LGS is not open on Mondays). Upon my pre-acceptance inspection of the pistol, I noted that it was in NEW condition sealed in a plastic bag with a TON of shipping grease/lube. It took forever to clean it all out, but is much better than rust on a new gun. Lockup is tight and I see no play or un-necessary movement in the slide to frame fit. Trigger is very crisp and very close to 'breaks like a glass rod'. I personally prefer roll triggers on 1911s (easier to master during sustained fire) so this one will likely spend some time on the bench, but the factory trigger is above average for a gun at this price point and is more than serviceable out-of-the-box. All other gaps (MSH to frame, grip safety to frame, etc.) are thin and uniform. Overall, I find the build quality of this gun surpasses the price; it's one heck of a deal.

Well first of all I wanna say this RIA CS 45 was exactly what i was looking for, my other 45 was ok during the winter for conceal carry but just to big for the summer. I been wanting a compact 45 a long time but just couldnt afford the high prices of Colt &; Springfield &; a few others, & w/ the quality of how good a RIA & there repitation & nearly half the price, you just cant beat it. The finish is ok but is not an issue @ all since this will be my primary weapon for CCW, I did have alot of concerns @ first about buying a weapon online since not able to @ least have the weapon in my hand to see how it feels especially since I have big hands, but I haveto say it feels right. The gun shoots great & I have had no issues jams or no feeds @ all, of course I only use 230 gr FMJ Round ball ammo. I also wanna say how excellent the service &; the speedy delivery I received here @ Buds, & there tracking was dead on & I was able to know purdy much where my weapon was @, & you cant beat there prices either. I would not hesitate to purchase another weapon threw yall & would also recommend to others.yall are defently 5 stars in my book, it was a pleasure doin business w/ yall, Thanks again, Tim

First transaction through Bud's and it was awesome. Ordered Saturday night and received in my hands Wednesday afternoon. Wanted the full size 1911 but I figured with my small frame that it would be easier to conceal the 3.5" much easier and it is. Shoots great and all! Best bang for you buck!

I have shot alot of guns in my time incliding the colt 1911 commander and this rock island 45 sub compact is a dream to shoot.I have fired over a 160 rounds of winchester 230 grain rounds ,it just eat them up like candy no problems. Althought the gun out of the box is extremely dirty with oil and metal shaving and should be cleaned before firing.Other than that this gun is one of the best 45 that i have ever fired for the price you can't bet it. This gun is right on the money every shoot fire in tight groups and it double taps perfect.Rock Island has a winner with this 1911, it cant be beat.
