I have a RIA. It's my favorite gun and I have many. Never had a single issue with it. I could shoot a fly off the wall at 7 yards with it. Best part is I picked it up off of a military buddy for about $400. Good luck finding a colt for that.

The RIA pistols for the money are great guns. The fit is good but the finish is a bit rough. Check out the ACII by metro Arms as the finish on the blued models is really nice. ATI by SAM is another good gun in that price range. Finish is better on them also. All are Filipino made and great buys. I just wish Metro arms made one in 9mm as I would get it immediatly.
