This gun was my first experience with a 1911. I was hesitant to buy a Philippine made 1911(Just didn't seem right, wanted an American made 1911). Out of the box my groups were good with no issues. But, replacing the grips with the Hogue wrap around grips for what ever reason, cut my groups by 50%.A better grip on the gun I assume made a big difference in accuracy. I like this gun so much and enjoy shooting it. I have sold my XD, Glock 19, and Ruger American. I will assume the grip angle is what makes this R.I. much more accurate than my striker fire guns. Most likely this R.I. .45ACP will become my CC weapon. I have no regrets on this purchase. I leave the range every time now after shooting this R.I. with a big smile on my face.
