I have a RIA Tactical 9mm, I added some Hogue wrap arounds and a fiber optic sight on the front. Mine needed nothing else to be a great shooter. My Tac 9 loves WPA steel case, so does my wallet.

I copied Hossfly and ordered a sight from Fusion, here is the link:

Required the dovetail be opened up a bit, I took it t a 'smith for fitting.

Rock Island is a great .45. I have a RI match. I use it for competition. Never fails me.

It is amazing. The military declared the 1911 design out dated years ago. It is still the top choice for most serious hand-gunners and elite police and military units.
