If you browse the 1911 forum you will find several threads about the RIA that will give you alot of info. The RIA is a good 1911 and worth every penny.

I just bought that same gun today, and put some checkered desert stripewood grips on it. Looks good and shoots great. Got mine for $349 before tax and id say imo it was a great buy.

May not need a break-in, but might should check it out to find out if you got one of the good ones, or not.

Agree on that but thats got nothing to do with "breaking in"
You "break in" a new wife - not a gun
