May be like everybody wanting the prom queen- Once you get your hands on'er tho????

Your not the first guy that's told me he likes his RIA more than some of his more expensive stuff but you have some after market grips on it correct?

Hossfly, i was the guy who took the prom queen away from the prom king!

Wiebelhaus, the RIA is one of the under rated 1911's on the market along with the MetroArms American Classic. they shoot well, function well, decent finsh, good fitment of parts and decent accuracy. too bad because they are really very good pistols at a very decent price. IMO, i think some people think if you didn't spen a grand on a 1911, then it's a crap pistol.

My LGS has a SR1911 in the rental fleet. I've shot it and it is a VERY nice shooter, I am going to try and pick one up when they are easier to find. Right now the list is about 40 people deep at both shops near me. As for it being a safe queen, not mine, it will get shot and shot A LOT! Unless something is a historical firearm, and it would have to be super rare, I shoot everything. Being I am in IL, I can't carry but if I could I would consider it for winter carry, but I have RIA 1911 Commander that I would probably carry first just due to size. And yes, the SR1911 is a damn sexy pistol.

I totally agree. I really am happy with my RIA. I eats anything I feed it and is more accurate than I am. I shoot it every bit as good as my buddies Kimber, HK and M&P. I did a few minor tweeks to mine, just detail striped and polished a few internals (by hand) and a quick slide lap. It's smooth as silk now. I'd like to add that it ran fine out of the box, but I like to tinker and there was a small amount of room for improvement. I also added grips that were slightly thinner than what it came with.

[QUOTE=HOSSFLY;864000]The XD is a VERY accurate handgun- Won't say anymore


I didn't intend to say the gun is inaccurate only that I find I do not shoot them well, nor the Glocks, so they are inaccurate for me. I like a single action much better.
