Very happy with my RIA tactical in 45 acp. One of the best values out there imo.

Very good for the money.

Other than some cosmetic changes I haven't done anything to it except shoot it, a lot. Accuracy is very good and it shoots any kind of bullet out of any magazine. I have other 1911s that cost twice what this one did that are no better.

In I shoot yours, you shoot mine, exchanges at our club several folks have remarked "is that one of them high dollar 1911s?" after shooting a mag through my RIA Tactical.
My brother-in-law A-B-C compared my RIA tactical with my Colt Commander and Kimber TLE and preferred the RIA, but he ended up linking my SIG P226 9mm best, so that is what he bought. Wimp :)
They are very good guns for the money, my oldest is at about 15,000 rounds.
But to be fair the TLE has rather aggressive checkering on the front strap which is probably hot helpful to a new shooter and the Commander has more muzzle flip because of the shorter barrel and slide.
