I tried building a few 1911s and bought expensive parts to try to make a primo custom 1911 - It was an extensive learning experience, in some ways rewarding and in some ways frustrating. I should have just bought a Rock Island. To build a proper 1911 that's better than a Rock Island, you need a machine shop. Now I have some Wilson Combat parts that I can retrofit onto my Rock Island and it will improve it.

Great gun. Worth every penny. Super accurate and fun to shoot. Several hundred rounds through it without one problem.

Was looking for a Colt Combat Commander and bought this on the advice of a very experienced gunsmith. It did not disappoint. Action is slick, trigger is great, and it eats everything. The only thing I wasn't thrilled about is that it has the captive recoil spring/guide rod and direct barrel/slide lockup vice the standard spring/plug/bushing setup, but that's on me for not digging into the specs more, and after shooting it I'm sold. Great accuracy and function for half the cost of its Colt cousin and every bit as good. Quick and easy shipping from Bud's as usual. One of the best deals going.

Can’t beat it for the price....I have put about 200 rounds through it so far without issues....it’s not as pretty as a Kimber or a Colt but it functions just as well.

I had never heard of Buds Gun Shop prior to making this purchase of my Rock Island 1911 .45 Acp. But I was searching the internet and came upon their website, and they had the cheapest price and free shipping, also for a small fee purchased a lifetime warranty on the firearm. I had it shipped to my local FFL, and received it very quickly. I also had never know that Rock Island Arms sold hand guns, but the 1911 is a great gun and well made, I have fired 50 rounds through it so far and have had zero problems. I love it. I definitely would recommend Buds Gun Shop to all my friends and family.

GREAT! Best gun in my collection this 1911 45 ACP 4.25 inch is now my fave.... finally have a 1911, no see why after all these years still produced, and by the company that made them for the US gov. for the GI's in WWII.
Bud's Gun Shop mad the purchase swift and easy went smother than expected thru my FFL here in Calif..... Sure wish I lived in the USA so things would not be as hard or with all the hassles that California adds to getting a fire arm here, most guns are not ON ROSTER! Can not get them into Calif at all. One minor change takes them OFF ROSTER. We cant get anything ne or improved here even if it's a SAFETY CHANGE does not make sense does it....
Would I buy from Bud's again... YOU BET I WILL!
Thanks for your time

Being a former Marine infantry SNCO, I have only known 1911's, so I decide to buy one that I could afford. Shopping around I went to Buds and found the Rock Island 51417 GI Standard MS 4.25 1911. Some what skeptical I went and bought it, great price, and WOW what a surprise this 4.25 was. Great shooting right out of the box. I punched the bore a few times and a little lube and off she went , ZERO issues. Well worth the money!!!!

This RIA MS 1911 is a great firearm. I love the 45ACP and I concealed carry a 1911 on a daily basis. This is just like a full sized GI style 1911 but is .75 inches shorter than the full sized 5 inch version. The big difference here is the MS has a full length guide rod and a bull barrel and no barrel bushing or recoil spring plug. As a result, the take-down/ field strip process is a little different than your standard issue 1911 and in some ways a bit more difficult. But don't let that scare you away. I highly recommend that you use a bent paper clip or an Allen-wrench to help you with field-stripping this pistol. This pistol can also be taken down without those items as well. Disassembly without an Allen-wrench or without a paper clip will get easier after you break in the pistol after a few hundred rounds as the recoil spring is very, very tight but will losen up over time. A simple search on YouTube will help you in figuring out how to field-strip the pistol, as the owners manual is quite simple and doesn't explain much in detail. This gun functions well and has tight tolerances. The finish is also very well done. I cleaned off the oil the gun came covered in- it was coated but not over-done as some reviews have said. Upon field-stripping the weapon, I examined the parts and internals and am happy to report that this pistol is very well made... no machining or tooling marks inside (or outside) the pistol. The folks at RIA know what they are doing and I hate to say this but the internals and machining inside this RIA 1911 are smoother and better done than the internals and parts on my American-made Springfield Armory mil-spec 1911's (I own 2 of those) and this RIA 1911 is better machined and better fitted than both of my Springfield 1911s... This RIA 1911 is my new EDC and the 4.25 inch barrel does lighten the pistol enough that you will notice a difference in the weight. This firearm will feed hollow points and hard ball ammo very well. The only time I noticed issues feeding hollow points is when I used magazines that were higher in capacity than 8 rounds. If you use 7 or 8 rounders they will work flawlessly in this pistol. Hard ball ammo fed flawlessly from my 10-round Wilson Combat extended mags. I have not fired this gun yet but everything on it functions and works great. Very high quality 1911. Also, RIA made 1911s for the US military back in WWII -The US government gave a copy of the original Colt 1911 blueprints to the RIA company back then so they could make these pistols for the US troops in WWII. That same factory that was used in the Philippines to make those 1911s is the same factory that is being used today and RIA still uses those same old Colt blueprints to make their 1911s. So, although these pistols have the small RIA logo on the rear of the slide, these 1911s are exact copies of the original Colt 1911s. They look just like the WWII era 1911s. -Because they in fact, are. Also all RIA 1911s are series 70, just how John Moses Browning intended them to be. You can't beat these 1911s for the money. I highly recommend them. Also Buds was great as usual. Transfer at my FFL was quick and easy as well. Thanks again, Buds! Life long customer right here. What the polymer wonders promise... the 1911 steel warrior has proven.
