there are so many people out there talking crap about the ria 45's they say it jams when using hole points well i will clear some question that u my have. i have smith and Wesson and rocks. i got my rock about a month ago and i have to tell you the gun is right on the money. very accurate.. i have shoot 30 rounds of hole points 230 grain no jams perfect. i have shot 500 rounds of target shots and no jams this gun fires 100% of the time with no problems. i will stick with this brand. its solid with no play in it. and even tho this gun is assembled in the Philippians don't mean anything the pattens are all the same hell i can take kimber parts colt parts all the 1911a1's are the same gun just diffident names and prices.. the value is all the same a nice solid gun that will not let you down. perfect for a carrying weapon and self protection..
