I recently bought a RIA 1911 chambered for 9mm. I got the Tactical model with the better sights and some other upgrades.

The gun functions 100% and shoots to the point of aim. The parts fitting and machining are comparable to my Springfield 1911's. I would not hestitate to buy another RIA.

The 2nd Amendment was, and still is intended to protect the individual citizen from Tyranny. Whether that Tyranny originates from
our own Government, common criminals, Progressive Liberalism, or foreign invaders, is irrelevant.

RIA's are great 1911 starter pistols and mine goes bang every time. Reliable enough to carry, and I have, and I trust it with my life...or yours!

I too love my RIA. I got the tactical model that has better sights and a number of other upgrades for just a few dollars more.

The guy at the local gunstore told me he would order me a brand new Rock Island GI model, in 38 super, for 400 bucks. I may take him up on that
