    This is primarily for RIA owners. How would you guys rate this model? Any common problems with it that I need to be aware of before I make my decision on whether I want to buy one?
    Thanks

    I'm not a big fan of less than full size 1911's but if it shoots as good as they do your in for a good time.

    mine works well after a 2 pound upgrade in recoil spring was added and 250 rounds of fmj break in was finished.

    What problems did you experience that required the spring change?

    nose dive jams with the first and second rounds and sometimes failure to go into full battery.

    I have two of the CS models plus a few more. I have never had a problem with the Compacts. Mine shoot just fine.
