Default RIA Update

As some of you know I purchased this pistol a few months ago and was having a feed issue on the first round of a fully loaded magazine. As of this weekend I now have over 1000 rounds through it and no problems whatsoever. The feed problem went away after about 30 rounds (I'm thinking it just needed to loosen up?) and I had one FTF at 50 rounds. I think that was a problem with the ammo and not the gun as I tried firing that round again by itself and it wouldn't go. All in all a great gun for me so far and I love it more with each round I put through it. I will keep you all posted as to how she does as time goes on.

I'm interested. I have one in .38Super that has not failed, but the .45 I purchased (and later sold) had issues with feeding.

Mine is a .45 as well. What kind of feed issues were you having? Like I said, with a few down the pipe it went away on its own.
