    Well I got it today. No rattle at all. Seems like a great gun for $300.00. Will shoot it at the shoot next weekend.

    With some Aluma grips I won on another site.

    I've never shot a 38 super but from what I've read/ heard they shoot very flat and fast.

    .38 Super is a blast to shoot from a 1911 platform handgun.

    Almost as fun as a 10mm (without the 10mm kick).

    Love the 38 Super :)
    Had a Colt back when $500 was too much to pay for one :p

    Do you, will you, reload for the 38super? From what I have seen -not much- the ammo cost is a bit of a killer. But it is one of those old cartridges that are just to good to go away. Kind of like the .45-70. Let us know how it goes. I bet it will be a super (no pun intended) handgun to shoot.

    It's a RIA .38 super GI. They ran a promotion on them and since I live 30 minutes away I picked one up. And yes NIB. I got lucky as my shooting buddy spotted the sale and they held one for me.

    The .38 Super is a very fine choice. Colt made a big mistake 50 years ago with their over sized chambers. The .38 Super 1911 was not accurate. Handgunners bought custom barrels and bushings and they shot just fine. As for the Colt 1911 Pistols most of them went to South America.:(
