    So I picked up my RIA 1911 Tactical and I gotta say I am stunned. The quality is just way beyond what I expected. There are no sharp edges or unfinished surfaces. Overall the the finish it self looks excellent much better then I expected to tell ya the truth. I would say its on Par with the Smith and Wesson 1911 E-Series I shot at the range for far less. Maybe its not fair to say that since the range gun was just that but still quality is extremely high on the RIA. Even the grips are not that bad there getting replaced to something more my taste but still.

    I did take it to the range and unfortunately didn't get to shoot it as much as I planed. I only shot about 50 rounds thought it. Around 10 rounds of 124gr FMJ and 10 rounds of 147gr JHP. Both feed great and gave me zero hiccups. I was really impressed. Since I know its common to have a break in period on the guns.

    Only thing I found to be a bit of a pain was taking off all the packing grease it had on it. Took me close to a hour but once done gave it a good coat of CLP. Not sloppy wet just a nice thin coat.

    Overall I kick my self for ever buying a Glock... Will definitely be adding more 1911's in the future... I think the kool aid was delicious.

    Picture bellow.

    Cool man as this will be my next 1911. Work is slow in my business now. Construction. Money is tight but I've heard nothing but good about that gun. Two of my freinds with lots more money than me got them and love'm. Congrats.

    Nice pickup. Heard nothing but good things about them and I am a big fan of 1911s in 9mm.

    More I think about it the happier I am I got the 9mm. Its way cheaper to shoot which is what I got the gun for a range gun.

    Thanks guys and yea the build quality is so high on it I think when I go to get my GI model it will be a RIA also just in 45. I do want atleast one untouched completely stock GI 1911

    Congrats!!!
    9mm 1911's are great shooters. i think bac1023 needs to get one since he's bought most of the .45ACP 1911's by now.

    I agree I think he has about ever single 1911 manufactured. Perhaps he owns stock in steel market. Love seeing his collection thought... Hmm has anyone ever seen a family photo of all of them togeather?

    His collection in one photo is not possible. Last time I saw the most recent group pics...I believe it was 1911s, revolvers, semi-autos. I think...

    Congrats on the new 9mm! I've only had my Colt 1911 for about a week and am now thinking about a 9mm 1911.

    That's pretty old isn't it? No EGW, Morris, No Name, or Pistol Dynamics unless I am just not seeing them.
