RIA 1911, March 03, 2016
I bought one of these here recently and really enjoy it! It is a beautiful gun, and a piece of history at that. I personally think an old GI style 1911 is cool. Comes with 1, 8 round mag. It is very stiff, so no problems there. Came with a nice hard plastic case. Ive only fired 50 rounds so far, I had 3 failures to eject, but the gun calls for a 500 round break in period so they really dont count anyway, and I noticed some grime in the action from the ammo, where the shell was getting stuck on( cheap, re-man ammo), so I blame the ammo, not the gun. It is comfortable to shoot and recoil is not bad at all. Comparable to my poly 9mm, the weight of this gun really tames the recoil. If your looking for a good GI style pistol to add to your collection/ or for carry, this is a good choice. Buy it, put good ammo through it, clean it, and enjoy!

Basic military issue, December 15, 2015
I checked out the history of R.I.A. and found that it has made military issue 45s scenes the 1930s. I wanted a basic military issue and got one. I have only put 500 rounds through this fine wepon. No matter how fast I fire there was no malfunctions. That was using different ammo as well. Drop it, kick it just blow off the dust and use it. It is easy to clean, detailed instructions come in the box. I am very pleased with this military issue 45.

My Full sized 1911 A1 GI, November 11, 2015
Over the course of a couple of years I have heard some bad things about these pistols. On the recommendation of two friends/owners I bought one. I have owned two Colt .45 ACP pistols in the past, this pistol is as good as either of those in functionality and quality. In the two years I have had this pistol I have fired approximately 2500-3000 rounds (some were +P rounds)through it with no problems. It functions flawlessly and is sufficiently accurate out to 50 yards, the furthest I have fired it. There are no tool marks visible in or on my pistol, I believe the quality to be as good as can be found anywhere. This pistol is my "go to" gun and constant companion.

Wow! Added fiber optic sights!, April 15, 2014
I bought this on a whim as I never owned a .45 ACP and the only thing it needed was some new sights. However, here is the story that made up my mind to buy this gun. Think of this gun as the AK47 of auto hand guns. I never owned a .45 and was interested in the platform. A friend of mine took me to the lake to shoot his. I was aghast when he put a foam ear plug in the barrel and threw the pistol in the mud and stepped on it. He then proceeded to take the gun out of the mud, remove foam ear plug and fire an entire magazine with no issue. Then while laughing, he field stripped it rinsed it off in the lake, put a good coat of Mobil 1 synthetic motor oil on it and reassemble. He then put the foam ear plug back in the barrel and threw the pistol in the gravely sand and covered it up. He pulled it out of the gravel, removed the foam ear plug from the barrel and fired the entire magazine with no issue. Lastly, like the ex-marine he is he cleaned (w/lake water), oiled, reloaded and jumped into the lake, then completely submerged came up and again fired a complete magazine with no issue. So I bought one, thinking of the pistol more as a combat pistol than a tactical pistol.

Rock Island 1911, April 06, 2014
Bought this new around September of 2013 haven't hit the range that often, but a great gun. Only problem I had was a sticky trigger, tore her down, cleaned her up and it was fine, excellent gun for the price

This is a GREAT gun., December 12, 2013
This is not a beginners gun this 1911 is way MORE than beginner. This 1911 is right up there with the more expensive 1911s. Has yet to malfunction. Easy field striping. I would trust this gun with my life. It just needs its sights painted or replaced with night sights. Can't go wrong with this 1911. Don't let 1911 snobs tell you they suck.

Best Kept Secret, February 20, 2013
I am former Marine Corps and broke my teeth on a .45 so when I went to buy a firearm my main concern was that it be something I was familiar and comfortable with. I did a lot of research before plunking down my hard earned money and found an interesting story about Rock Island Armory (not 100% sure if it's true!). According to what I researched, Colt had a large pistol manufacturing plant in the Phillipines before WWII broke out. When the Japanese took the Phillipines, Colt evacuated their factory there and left all the tooling machinery & dies and never returned for it. Years later, Rock Island Armory was created using the exact same equipment as Colt uses during their machining process. I have now put real close to 1,000 rounds downrange with this firearm. I did have 2 jams that occurred within the first 300 rounds, since then, absolutely trouble free. As for cleaning, I purposely did not clean this firearm just to see how it would perform "dirty". No problems at all. Eventually I gave her a good cleaning just because the smoke was making it hard to see downrange lol! I had heard a couple people mention tooling marks on their firearm and as for myself, absolutely none. This thing came in perfect condition and ready to roll. I had to laugh because when my armorer went through the safety check at his shop during delivery, he mentioned that he was suprised I even knew about Rock Island Armory. In his words, this firearm is the, "Best kept secret in the industry." since for the money, you won't find a better .45 pistol. Based off my experience, you are going to be extremely hard pressed to find this great of a firearm at this price! Heck, for that matter you might find it impossible, my armorer sure thinks so.
