    I have a RIA 1911 Tatical really nice gun pretty solid made. I did have to file down the ambi safety but that was minor thing. Over all for the price extremely happy with mine. So far I got around 500 rounds thought it.

    They very rarely get any bad reports.
     
  9. Grips and finish are the only complaints I've seen.

    Grips are easy to change, finish can be a bit more of a job, but a weak finish doesn't affect anything important. :cool:

    The grips do suck thats for sure. There not low quality or anything its just there plan cheap grips. No big deal thought sure 99% of people pefer to change out grips to there liking I know I am.

    RIA is a solid brand. Its the perfect tinkering gun or could be left as-is and will run and run. My personal experience with the RIA 1911s I own has been nothing but positive. My RIA compact was my main winter CCW piece and is now back-up to my Ultra Carry II only because I wanted something even lighter.

    I'd get one and leave relatively as is.
    I would get a Springfield to use as a base.

    Those look like some fat grips.
