I love my rock island match 1911, you made a good choice. Rock Island is a great product. Plus, be sure to stock up on Armscor .45ACP ammo. It is great ammo.

That is one serious looking gun, Enjoy.

Congrats on the addition. Pleasantly looking forward to some range reports.

I'll throw some up probably Monday night. Should be here by then. Any other dos/donts I should know about breaking it in? Clean first? I'm aware of the idiot scratch already haha

You will probably find the magazines that come with the RIA are less than perfect, buy some decent mags and put the originals in a box for range use. I like Chip Mc Cormic the best and have never had a magazine induced malfunction with them.

Thanks. I've already bought a Wilson Combat Elite Tactical 900B mag. It actually came before the gun has.

As you can tell from the gun I bought, I like different, super tactical (in a realistic sense) kind of things. I was looking at TFO's, but I haven't seen if they make them for 1911's. I like the idea behind them. Any thoughts? I'm new to this guys. I'm definitely an AR guy
personally i wouldn't make any changes until you have run a few hundred rounds through it. it may be just perfect the way it out the box.

grips would be the exception to this rule IMO.

if it ain't broke, don't fix it.
