I've yet to see a RIA 1911 (with good mags) that didn't work exactly as it was supposed to. For some people especially when it comes to 1911's they will thin it's crap unless it's their flavor of 1911.
The biggest issue with any RIA I've seen was due to mags. And that happens with about any brand out of the box. If the mags are not good then they wont act right.
A RIA is no t a Nighthawk, but you don't pay for a Nighthawk wen you buy a Rock Island. But you do get a 1911 that will do what it's supposed to.
