Easy transaction from Bud's. I was looking for a 1911 in 9mm and did not want to spend a lot. I did a lot of reading of reviews on this site and other forums. Almost all were very good. I bought this from Bud's and also took advantage of the rebate currently being offered from the manufacturer. This pistol is outstanding! Fit and finish is excellent and it has a nice clean, crisp trigger. I did have a couple of FTF's in the first 50 rounds or so, but I attribute this to the gun being brand new. I put about 200 rounds of ball type ammo through it as well as a couple different types of hollow points without a problem. The accuracy seems great. This gun has the ambidextrous safety, but I was able to put a set of non-ambi grips that I had laying around without modifying them due to the type of ambi-safety. I do suggest replacing the factory grips, but I could have lived with them if I didn't have the others laying around and did not want to spend the money on grips. Great gun especially for the price. I do not feel like I sacrificed anything for the price.

This gun is amazing! This is my first 1911 and the first gun I've bought off Bud's. Took it out to the range the first weekend after I got it and put about 75 rounds through it without any issues. Zero issues! The gun cycles everything I've put through it. I have even hand cycled some Hornady Custom 147gr JHP through this bad boy and still zero issues. I've read that if you are going to run HP's through this then go with a larger bullet. Don't use 115gr or 124gr. I have read that they can have issues, but the 147gr run perfectly. The gun comes with a Metalform magazine which i highly recommend for this gun. I bought a Metalform 10rd and it runs perfectly. Again, zero issues! The only thing I will say is that the picture shows the new model with the small logo on the rear of the slide. I got the older model with the "Rock Island Armory" billboard on the slide, but it's not that big of a big deal. I am overall extremely happy with my purchase and I will be buying from Bud's exclusively from now on.

Just took mine out for the first time. Ran like a champ. 150 rounds through it. 100 rounds of 2 different brands of brass ammo and not a single issue. Last 50 rounds was aluminum casing ammo and had 2 ftf's. Bullets just didn't push up unto the chamber. Easy to clear. Lessons learned: stick with brass ammo and you're golden. Can't wait to get out again with this beauty.

This was my first Rock Island Armory purchase and let me say it won't be my last. Fit and finish exceeded my expectations for a sub-$450 1911. It shot great right out of the box and with over 300 rounds through it, I've experienced no failures, even with the sometimes sketchy reloads and cast lead bullets folks give me. It came with nice brand name magazines (to which I added a slam pad). Accuracy is very good and with a full size 1911 frame shooting 9mm, recoil is light. Now, why only four stars. My pistol came with a firing pin stop that I could not remove. I personally think they put a little too much finish on the slide and it got stuck. I sent it off to RIA prepaid and they fixed it, no problem. Now, it is a really great pistol and one I love to shoot. I wish I could give it 4.5 stars but that isn't an option. Anyway, I am quite satisfied and recommend this pistol.

Excellent gun. Don't let the reasonable price fool you, RIA makes quality stuff. Excellent trigger and reset, never a malfunction and a better shooter and more dependable than my Glock. This thing is a tank, and I'll never sell it. Thank you ria for quality guns at bargain prices.

Purchased this RIA in 9mm trying to fill out my collection of 1911 types. I would have preferred a Metro in this caliber but it wasn't available. I have a Metro in .45cal. and think it is super. The RI is not as nice as the Metro ( fit & finish ) but is good overall . If you're thinking of buying this pistol I would suggest that you go for the Metro Classic II in .45 cal,. I have found that there is no discernible difference In felt recoil between the two and the Metro is much more accurate than the RIA, not that this cant be remedied, but given the quality advantage and the feel ( comfort ) of the Metro ClassicII, I see no reason not to go for the higher quality pistol. Just my opinion, but it is a side by side comparison.
