I went to a gun show and saw some Rock Island Armoury 1911A1 .45ACP and was talking to one of the sellers and he told me that to make this gun perfect I needed to install some better sites and a full length recoil compensating guide rod and an adjustable trigger. The sites I agree with and not too sure I want the adjustable trigger but a full length adjustable compensating guide rod I don't know a lot about. I asked another RIA seller his opinion and he thouhght they were were over rated and a waste of time. I plan on buying one in the near future and would like some opinions from people who have 1911A1 that actually have compensated guide rods. Thanks for the input.
