    Rock Island, Oh yes....

    Posted by Kentucky on Jun 25th 2017

    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.

    Flawless Function, Excellent for the Price

    Right out of the box, this pistol functioned without issue. I now have just under 500rds through without a hitch, even through break-in, it has shot everything I put through it. That's better than some high-end guns I own too. The 3.5" barrel is perfect for conceal carry. I find the 3.0" Barrel compacts from other manufacturers a little too short. This RIA CS is an excellent value for the money.
