I just sent my Compact back for warranty because it would not feed any type of ammo without a ftl every 1-2 rds, I tried all kinds of different mags. Colt, Chip McCormick, Springfield, etc and nothing. Have to wait 3-4 was to see what happens.

But he good this is that the dealer that sent my RIA Compact out his received a new Sig 2-tone P-226 I just might have to get to replace my RIA

I almost bought an RIA last week. It was down to a Remington R1, an RIA, a no name Philippine 1911 & a Springer Range Officer. I took the RO. It has a forged frame. The others are cast. That was justification enough for the added price for me. But if I had a need for a less expensive 1911, I would buy an RIA & not regret it. I think...

They are made in the philipines by Armscor, which also makes the High Standard 1911.. I have a HS 1911 and ive put 1,000 rounds through it with 0 malfunctions

Thx guys I didn't know. I recall Remington Arms never made 1911 pistols during WWII. The Renington marked 1911s were made by Remington Office Equpt. Co. No relation to Remington Arms.

Not true. Remington made about 21,000 M1911s. This was the arms company, not the office supply company. See:

Read this again. I said Remington Arms did not make 1911 pistols during WWII. Remington UMC has not made a 1911 pistol for over 90 years. The Remington Rand Pistols made during WWII were made by Remington Type Writer and Office Equpt. that split off in 1928. Remington UMC pistols of WWI are not the same as the Remington Rands made during WWII.

Yes. You are correct. I misread your previous statement. My apologies.
