Rock Island Armory 51431 1911 FS 8+1 45ACP 5"
by Galen P Date Added: Thursday 28 June, 2012
I bought this pistol after reading great reviews. Overall the RIA .45 ACP Tactical is a nice gun for the money. The trigger had a light , though creepy, pull and the slide and safeties all functioned as they should. I liked everything about it.........until I shot it. I had a double fire when I ran the first magazine through it. Luckily I have a friend who also happens to be a gunsmith. I took the pistol to him to have it checked out. Turned out the sear was barely engaging. He told me I was lucky it didn't go full-auto. The light trigger I was so impressed with turned out to be not so good. He replaced the sear and the gun functioned flawlessly. I would have given this pistol 5 stars but due to the unsafe condition, I gave it one as I feel this is a major flaw. I must have drawn an unlucky card, as I haven't seen any reports of a similar malfunction. Don't let this review discourage you from buying what I consider to be a pretty good .45 as everything else on the gun was fine. Just be aware it can happen.
