who has a RIA 1911

This thing has good reviews. Anyone have one, or know anything about it?

"This Rock Island is a very nice basic 1911. It features all steel construction with a 5 inch barrel, GI type sights, parkerized finish, spur hammer, short trigger, flat mainspring housing, wood grips, GI guide Rod and plug, rear only vertical cocking serrations, traditional barrel/bushing set up and 70 series firing system (no firing pin safety). These guns are inexpensive, but are very well made guns. Includes hard case and 1 ACT 8 round mag."

I have not owned one.
I have read many positive reviews.
They are not junk.
If you expect a basic 1911, that's what you'll get.
Many people use them as the basis for a custom.

thanks for the info.
I have also read many of the reviews, much more good than bad.
What about the RI armory? Ive never dealt with them. Anyone have good/bad stories with them or their weapons?

Thanks

This might help....http://thefiringline.com/forums/showthread.php?t=464068
You can also search thefiringline under semiauto pistols using 'RIA' as the search value and get more info.
I think you're on the right track.
What model and price are you considering?

for around $75 more, you might as well get the Tactical version IMO... all depends on your budget though

ive shot a bunch of different models and have enjoyed them all. I just couldnt bring myself to pay so much for something to be locked up 90% of the time. the RIA is beyond a fair price! I go shooting quite a bit, and want to start broadening my horizen of handguns. Ive always been a long rifle guy.
