    Well I ended up getting a rock island tactical (will post pics later)
    im pretty happy with the feel of it so far haven't got to shoot it yet
    but i dont think the grip saftey is depressing all the way its only moving 1/16" is this right?:dunno: i haven't very many 1911's :whistling:

    Well make sure the gun is unloaded, make sure the hammer is back, point in a safe direction, grip it, and pull the trigger. It will let you know

    If you have any problems, RIA will take care of you. Welcome to a sickness.

    Yes I have had a RIA and a Springfield. Springfield's Customer service is a better than RIA but RIA still has a lot better than most out there.
