He's full of s**t. Buy it....any model. (OK, except the 22 TCM Micro Mag/9mm. I guess I haven't shot/fondled every RIA model. )

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

I disagree. I would recommend any 1911 in .45 Auto made by RIA, but my 22 TCM / Micro Mag 9mm is underwhelming and disappointing.

he probably hates them because he doesn't get to work on them if they do rarely have a problem and RIA has a great warranty!

buy it. you won't be disappointed in it.

that could IMO be more a failing in the cartridge not the pistol.

It's more the fit. I ordered grips that did not fit. The gap near the grip safety/beaver tail is annoying. It is not nearly as nice as it could/should be. IMHO.

well that's possible. the one i looked at a couple weeks ago looked really nice. just the idea of a 9mm necked down to a 22 didn't enthuse me. maybe that cartridge in a different platform i might could like it, just not in a 1911.

I use it strictly for 9mm. Have not used the 22 TCM barrel or round yet.

It's the way the gun is made. Like a Para P14 frame.
