I got one in December and have around 1000 rds of all types through it and the only malfunction was a few ftf's due to cheap mags which was my fault; not the gun's. It shoots awesome and consistent tight groups. I am 110% happy with it and blown away by the customer service. Best service I've received in my life. I just sent mine to Armscor's gunsmith, Arnel who installed Trijicon night sights and had it back to me in less than one week. On top of that, he replaced the sear spring, recoil spring, and mag spring as a goodwill gesture free of charge and even sent a spare recoil spring, several Armscore and RIA stickers, RIA hand towel, pen, promo DVD and some other items with the gun. I highly recommend the RIA 1911 officer/compact and will not even consider other brands when i decide to get the full size model. Go for it and I guarantee you will be blown away by the quality of this gun.
