Default RIA 1911

I own one a RIA Goverment 70 series and love it very much it was actually my First 1911 then i bought a Colt Government Stainless. Then a Gold Cup i tell you i had the 1911 bug for a while especially this year. These 1911'S are a well kept secret for those who want a Affordable Clone of the M1911. Some guy in a 1911 forum said they used to be built on old Colt Machinery. That is a joke i am guessing But anyway.

Any of you guys own one??? mine is just a Basic GI 70 series they also make a Tactical,Compact/Commander/Officer size.

Have you guys had any feeding or ejecting issues??? I was having some issues in the begining until i polished up the feed ramp a little. Using some flitz and my dremel for less than 3 seconds. Are yours feeding Hollow Points fine???

I just have the factory ACT Mag and a WIlson 47D Any other mags work Fine with the RIA 1911???

If you got pics i would love to see em.

The number one issue with feeding HP ammo is the magazine. A "ball" magazine will not feed HP ammo reliably in the best of guns. A good magazine will fix more problems than all the work in the world.
In life, strive to take the high road....It offers a better field of fire.
