    I picked up an RIA M1911A1 today, I know it's a cheaper 1911, but I gotta start somewhere!
    I now have a Sig 1911C3 and this one.....on my way!

    Anybody else pick up a 1911 on the anniversary date?

    Any thoughts on this gun? I have seen a bunch of favorable remarks, that's what tempted me on it.

    'Aint them grips ugly??! :supergrin:

    RIA is one of the best kept secrets in the 1911 world. Nice grab!

    not an easy answer since all guns are different. find one that works well in YOUR gun.
