So, I have report of a bad experience (CA357) but yet all others say it is a decent deal for these pistols.
That one that Canebrake showed is beautiful ! Showed the wife. She even liked it. Woo Hoo..

I knew I could count on everyone here. Looks like a 1911 is in the near future. Hopefully I can get one before my Birthday in June so I can shoot it on the day of.

Unfortunately, now I feel my 9mm is inferior and you all have created a monster.. But dam,... Feels Good !

THANKS !!

I have no doubt that CA357 may have gotten a lemon; however, I've known folks that have used RIA's customer service and found it awesome...

Like I said, I'm sure mine was a lemon. That's why I don't bash RIA's, too many people have good results with them.

I felt it was only fair to share my experience for balance. I might even consider trying another one someday. I might not, but...

What was wrong with the one you had? If you ever get another and have a problem, just call the service dept. and ask for Arnel. He's their guru and will take great care of you.

Mine wouldn't feed consistently. I bought it new and it never fed. I used the RIA specified mags and it just wouldn't feed.

My 1911 is designated as my :combat" gun. If it ever comes down to it, it gets the duty. I couldn't trust the RIA.

I don't have a bunch of money and multiple guns in multiple calibers. My customized Sistema 1911 has the duty now that it's re-broken in.
