Default What do you think about

What do you think about the Rock Island .45 caliber 1911 hi-capacity, they are on sale at Centerfire Systems for about $450.

What I was wondering was if anyone has one and what their coments were concerning this handgun? Pro's and con's.

Don't have the Hi Cap, but the RIA 1911 is worth the money.

Here's a Good Range report on the RIA 1911.

Very reliable, eats anything you feed it, and is a great shooter out of the box to cut your teeth on for a 1911. For the price and a very basic hi cap 1911 pistol, you could not do very much better, and you can add some upgrades to the spring or trigger if you feel it necessary in the future. Personally, I would invest in a few Para Ordnance mags as well, they seem to feed better for this double stack.
