Rock Island Armory 51431 1911 FS 8+1 45ACP 5"
by Paul P Date Added: Friday 12 April, 2013
First off I have no issues with Buds. They do mean it will take five business days before shipping if using echeck but on the fifth day the gun was shipped and arrived at the gun dealer's in two days.

The next day it was off to the range to try it out and I took my Desert Eagle 1911G for comparison. The RIA feels just as solid as the DE in my hand and I hit the target as accurately with it as with the DE. I shot a box of PMC fmj and a box of Estate fmj through each of the guns using the mag that came with the RIA, a couple of new McCormicks from Buds, Wilson Combat and the DE mags. I did experience eight failures to load in the RIA but no other problems and do not believe any of those were due to any of the mags as I had no trouble at all using them in the DE. I consider it as part of a break-in period for the RIA and a possible need to give the ramp a good polishing.

Considering the price of the RIA I am very pleased with the purchase and wouldn't hesitate to buy another.
