Default $375 for a RIA 1911? Duracoated?

http://www.classicfirearms.com/hand-guns/rock-island-armory-45-gi-model-with-special-duracoat-finish

This is the least expensive i have seen the RIA marked. It says that this one is duracoated.

Any opinions on this one? for myself and others?

Anybody bought from classicarms lately?

Classic had a good reputation on other boards. Never bought from them before. As for the Duracoat, I'm not a fan.

Not sure that RIA actually had a factory duracoat. Their finish is similar, but more of a parkerized one. I'll have to dig more on that.

Looks like a great price if Classic is still getting good reviews.

I've used duracoat, and had no problems with it at all. Depends heavily on prep work to the surfaces.

I don't see what is so "special" about the duracoat

I purchased an AK from them late last year. The gun was exactly as advertised & quick service/shipping. I would buy from them again based on my experience.

Yeah assuming all of their claims are true, that's a steal. I'd jump on it. .... Jump on it! Jump on it! .... Now that song is stuck in my head..
