Got The TAC Ultra FS in 45 acp. Traded my 2 SW SDVE'S for it even up. Just did not enjoy them.
Barrel bushings Are they interchangeable? I want to replace the compensator on mine. I heard it will harm the slide looking at this one. https://www.ebay.com/itm/1911-Barrel....c100675.m4236
I have a stock RIA bushing ordered. No guess work that way.
The new one came. Had to put it on my other RIA though. Couldn't get it all the way into place. But the one on my other rock worked. Now to see if the swaps effect accuracy.
Looking at the photo brought to mind a beef of mine: On a 1911, the put slide serrations everywhere except where they would do the most good. That would be in the center of the slide where my hand goes to rack it.
first of all, very nice looking 1911! yes, i'm a little jealous too! seriously, very nice indeed.
second, if it's Mil-Spec, and i think the RIA 1911's are for the most part, the bushing should fit. but, it may need a little fitting, as not all parts for 1911's are drop-in. some require a little "coaxing" to get them to fit and function properly. as i think you found out, by swapping parts from one to the other.
will the bushing affect the accuracy? hmmm...yes, and no. the bushing helps with proper barrel lock-up and keeping in battery. what gains accuracy in most 1911's, is consistent lock-up each and every time the pistol is fired. now, here is the tricky part, a tightly fitted bushing can help with increasing accuracy. now if the pistol is range toy, or target pistol, doesn't matter. on a 1911 i was going to carry for SD, i would prefer a little looser bushing, and sacrifice a little accuracy for the sake of the pistol being a little looser and more reliable for carry purposes. and for the most part, even if it does increase it's accuracy, about 95% of those who own and shoot 1911's, would probably not even be able to discern the difference in what increases were gained. shooting it in a clamped pistol rest, you might see a little difference in accuracy, one way or the other.
now a disclaimer: i am not a 1911 expert, just someone who has owned quite few over the years, shot many rounds through them, and someone that loves the 1911 platform and has learned a few things over the years. others may have differing opinion than mine on this.
just out of curiosity, what was the final price on that one?
BTW, i'm a huge fan of the RIA 1911's. i have owned one in the past, and i wouldn't hesitate in buying another one. as a matter of fact, in the near future, i hope to add a 1911 in 38 Super to the collection and RIA has really nice one.
I Traded both of My Sw sd/ve's even up for it and the ammo. The gun retails 600-700 depending on what site you look at. It was used. they were asking 395.00 My other rock i got from them was 335.00 he gave it to me at 325.00. The shop has all there guns and other items all priced out the door. Msrp is 700 and change. Some of there used prices is more than new sometimes. If i see something i like i research. Another nice deal is any gun you order on line and ship to them. They only charge 10.00 for the transfer and background check.
