Default Little RIA

Took the plain jane RIA .45 to the range this morning and put 100 rounds thru it. Never been a big fan of tiny GI sights but I did reasonably well at 25 feet. This target is the first 20 rounds, fired at a quick pace from 25 feet. Everything is in the 9 ring so I can't complain. This is the first 1911 I've had that bit me - so I'll probably bob the hammer just a tad. Not going to invest anything in it so that will be the quickest fix...

Thanks Dune. Just broke it down and cleaned it and since it was apart I drug out the Dremel and bobbed the hammer a tad. Shortened it maybe 3/32 and reshaped the back side so it wont pinch or bite. Hit it with some cold blue and it's all back together ready for the next outing...

Wow. Really nice shooting Dave. For being a plain Jane out of the box, she seems to shoot quite nicely. With a little love and TLC, I am betting you have your hands on a real winner.

Congrats!

JD

I was pretty impressed that it shot to POA quite well. I can say honestly that 25 feet is about the max for the tiny GI sights. Looks like this will make a good truck of nightstand gun. I'll shoot it again this week to check out the quick hammer bob I did today...

Had to get some stuff from Brownell's so I got an adjustable bow trigger and a Commander style hammer for this little guy. I relieved the grip safety a tad for the hammer ring (ala my Colt Commander) and she's ready to shoot again...
