All I can say about this thing is that it shoots everything I stuff in it and is very dependable. Like most low priced 1911's the trigger got worked over, now all is well.

The Rock Island Officers 45 is a Big Hit with me. I have fired 200 through the throat, Not one issue. The Gun is Accurate right out of the box. This might be by far the best kept secret. The RIA is an excellent firearm! Thanks Buds. This one is a Keeper!

I own a Kimber but didn't want to drop another thousand on a "pretty" gun for carry that was just going to get beat up every day. I have had absolutely ZERO issues with this gun. The price is amazing and it functions flawlessly. Accuracy isn't bad either considering the sights it comes with. I couldn't have been happier with this purchase. FYI, Rock Island has been making 1911's almost as long as we have here in the states.

I purchased this pistol several months ago. I am a big fan of 1911 pistols- this one is my fourth. I have a colt commander which I keep by the bed, I would find anything else unlikely to measure up. Even so, this RIA compact model is quite nice. I've put 200 rounds of handloads through this pistol, both semi-wadcutter and LRN lead bullets, FMJ and truncated cone jacketed bullets. All have fed well (after the 1st 30 or so rounds). Accuracy is quite satisfactory--its very easy to keep your rounds within a 10" circle at 25 yds offhand. It seems tp shoot to point of aim at that range. It is also very concealable in small-of-back inside-the-pant holster. I find it much more comfortable to carry than my springfield xd40compact. It's smoother, rounder edges don't gouge you in the back while driving. I am quite pleased with this pistol!

When I picked up the weapon, I had some serious issues. The weapon jammed after four rounds and would not allow me to fire more then 2 or 3 rounds without having to be cleared. I called Rock Island, and they took care of it big time. Paid for shipping to and from, got it back to me within 3 weeks and kept me well informed. I have put over 500 rounds through it since I got it back and I have had no issues. Fires like a dream. Great weapon for the price! would highly recommend Rock Island (Armscorp) as they really take care of their customers. Very satisfied. Would strongly caution against buying any other magazine regardless of brand from anywhere other then Rock Island. All the other mags I bought I had issues with.
