Congrats on the RIA! Can not help on the reloading but...
I put a pair of Hogue soft rubber grips on my American Classic Cmdr and have been very satisified with the performance. The rubber has held up very well and offers more grip then others I tried.
I also put on a pair of xs big dot sights, and upgraded my springs using a wolf springs kit
