    it might be in the wrong place but we can still answer his question.

    they are inexpensive 1911's and they are plenty bang for your buck. i have shot a few and was impresed. there are alot of happy owners of the ria.

    wrong section bro lol! But yeah Rock Islands are great .45s for the price. I had one, never had a problem, then I traded it for an M&P .45.

    Thread saved. :D

    I've not heard anything bad about RIA 1911s from those who own them.

    I have three, they're wonderful pistols. Armscor also make rifles, but I don't know if we can get them here in the US.

    One of the best buys for the money. I currently have 2 and shoot them all the time. I plan on getting more of them once money permits after the Holidays.

    rob, don't worry about it. The Mods will eventually get around to moving the thread to the right sub-forum. Just keep posting.

    I have a RIA tactical that I shoot USPSA with. It is a great gun, but replace the springs after about 5000 rounds.

    I get a kick out of beating the guys with the $3000 wilson combats with my $400 gun.

    Definately not a rifle, but for the money they're great shooters.:)

    For $400 and change my RIA tactical was the best buy of the year. Way more accurate than it should be for the price and mine had a terrific trigger right out of the box. Get the Tactical, it's worth the extra few $.

    I don't have one but my neighbor does. It had a few "break in" hiccups but after that it was fine.

    Its on my list of guns to buy. The finish isnt as "Pretty" as a higher grade but what do I care? I'm gonna point and go bang with it not put it in a displaycase.
