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.

I was quite skeptical with my first gun purchase online and from buds. I had a excellent gun buying experience and took advantage of the 90 day layaway program which I had paid off in a month. I purchased in full on a Wednesday and it shipped on Thursday and I received the following Monday at my FFL dealer. I would most definitely recommend buds gun shop to any of my friends and family and with my experience beings so well i'm thinking of becoming part of team buds since gun collecting is a hobby of mine. The gun came in perfect condition as it would come straight out of the factory and I would also recommend the Rock Island 1911 CS pistol to anyone. I'm very happy with my purchase and will most definitely considered more business with buds gun shop in near future. Thank you
