rock island armory 45 1911a1
 
there are so many people out there talking crap about the ria 45's
they say it jams when using hole points well i will clear some question that u my have. i have smith and Wesson and rocks. i got my rock about a month ago and i have to tell you the gun is right on the money. very accurate.. i have shoot 30 rounds of hole points 230 grain no jams perfect. i have shot 500 rounds of target shots and no jams this gun fires 100% of the time with no problems. i will stick with this brand. its solid with no play in it. and even tho this gun is assembled in the Philippians don't mean anything the pattens are all the same hell i can take kimber parts colt parts all the 1911a1's are the same gun just diffident names and prices.. the value is all the same a nice solid gun that will not let you down. perfect for a carrying weapon and self protection..

Hey, finally someone who likes the RIA 1911. I also have one in .45 and I love it. I have fired pretty close to 2000 rounds through mine so far and it has NEVER jammed, not even with hollow points. It will consume any .45 ammo you put in it. I have fired just about every brand of .45 ammo out there and never had a jam. I also carry mine when I'm out, and while they are a little heavy, it's still very easy to conceal. I'm regularly conceal mine under a t-shirt in the summer and a jacket in the winter.

I've never fired one, so I can't comment on how it fires. It doesn't have some of the features that others have. I'd like to see a beaver tail grip safety and a commander style hammer, as well as a longer, skeletonized trigger. I've never been a fan of the USGI triggers.

Hollow points....

All hollow points are not created equal just because you gun fires brand A just fine doesn't mean it will fire brands C , E and F fine and 30 rounds of anything honestly isn't enough to proclaim them 100% reliable in your gun .

Some Hollow points like the Hornadys have a smaller diameter hole therefore less of the surface area of the front of the bullet has the sharp edge of a hole than some like the older Speer Lawmen 200 grain JHP's have a very large hole by comparison to the Hornadys , which more area of edge means it has a greater chance that it could catch on any imperfection "Scratch" on your feed ramp or barrel throat .

Have to agree with Matt those extra feature he mentions are on the Tactical version and come with a whopping price difference of perhaps $50 , I would have spent the extra money myself .

My bare bones RIA 1911 has launched eveything I've tried. Hole points to hollow points, FMJs, JHPs, the works, sent down range without issue.

I ordered an RIA Tactical last week and now I feel like a kid waiting for Christmas.

I have never owned an RIA but I am not opposed to owning one. I bought my PT 1911 a few months back and tweaked it to my taste. Love it so far.
