just how many 1911's do you own? and RRA would be Rock River Arms? their present 1911's have a polymer frame with a steel slide, pretty much just like a Glock. and they use to several years ago make a steel 1911 befor they decided to concentrate fully on AR's.
RIA and MetroArms both make their 1911's in the Phillipine Islands and both have very good reputations as making excellent pistols. many members here have both the RIA and the MetroArms American Classics along with the Armscor High Standard which is made by the same company as the RIA, and the Firestorm line with is mae by the same company as MetroArms, and the overwhelming consensus is that all of them are very well made and decently accurate 1911's.
BTW, i currently own a MetroArms AC Commander and have owned another one in the past and can attest to the fact that they are very well made pistols. i have also looked at the RIA 1911's and with all the favorable reviews from others, would not hesitatein buying one of their 1911's either.
