    I purchased my first 1911 and with much debate over the two contenders for 10mm The DW Bruin and the RIA Big Rock I went with RIA. I have shot this a bit and I love the double stack, 16+1 headed down range with some dangerous animal underwood coming for my next hike in the Rockies I am very...

    Have any of you messed with RIAs to any extent? When I was shooting their 45s they were a pleasure to shoot. They ran well, had very good triggers, delivered surprisingly good accuracy, etc.. I’m now noodling in getting one of their dressed up 1911A1s in 9mm and having them fit up a 38 Super...

    I am trying to find a member of the 1911forum.com by the name of Steam Boat. I wanted to ask him a question on the thread https://forums.1911forum.com/showthread.php?t=1009086 about his magazines and how they worked after his modifications and the posts apparently have to be approved by a...

    Just recently grabbed up one of the RIA tac guns. This one being the standard not having the adjustable sights, front slide serrations, and G10 grips. Which i didn't need bc i knew I was goiing to completely give this thing a makeover. One of my absolute favorites has been the SA TRP Operator...

    Had been wanting a 22 mag 1911 style pistol for some time, bought one and admit the $50 rebate swung the deal, it's a RIA XT22 mag, and I really do like the fit and feel of it. I applied for the rebate and instead of cash or check you get a discount code only good at Advanced Tactical. Close...

    Withdrawn Took this on a trade from the original owner. She ran 2 mags thru it. Fit is good, typical Rock finish, no flaws, just not my favorite finish. Comes with 1 magazine, box, and the custom Cherokee Hills grips. Those are $140 grips, I took the clip on (Wilson style) magwell off, it is an...

    I have recently become aware of the RIA Pro Match Ultra series, where their custom shop hand fits and hand builds these guns. The 5" is $668 on gunbuyer.com, the LS is $852 on GB with the seller as TheGunPros. Check out the Armscorp site info: https://armscor.com/firearms/ria/pro-series/ I...

    A Guncrafter #2 it is not. A WC Supergrade it will never be. But this thing is a lot of fun, and really nice for the $ invested. I’ve had a 10mm itch for a while that wouldn’t go away, and got this for $675 brand new including shipping and transfer fees, so what the hell, right? I immediately...

    Man, I couldn't believe it today - here it is Friday 12/29, after Christmas, etc...etc... and the place was PACKED! :confused: Anyway, I went cheap (as I tend to do) and printed my own target, brought my own ammo (Georgia Arms 230gr FMJ), my own gear, and set the target out at 15 feet. Not too...

    These are Guncrafter Industries “straight eight” style night sights that came off a Rock Island Armory TCM Tactical 2011. They may fit other models but I’m unsure. In good condition, no dents, dings or marks. They’re marked Trijicon H3 15 so they’re high quality and bright. Asking $100...

    Here is my full size Rock Island Armory 1911 .45 ACP just freshly cleaned and lubed after another range session today. The RO noticed my USCG grips and asked where I got them, how much, etc... (even though he's not a "Coastie"). I assume he wanted another branches' emblem on a pair of 1911...

    As I wrote on Facebook to some friends... "I just got home from Colonial Shooting Academy on Broad St. with my classic 1911 .45 ACP from Rock Island Armory. I was shooting some leftover "gun show" ammo from Georgia Arms (common 230gr .45 ACP rounds) and set the target at only 15 feet away. I...

    Wow... What a heck of a place! This is by far the most incredible indoor range I have ever been too! www.colonialshooting.com I got there early this morning at 9:00am when they opened. As a non-member, I had to watch a simple, somewhat cheesy safety video, and then continue with paperwork...

    Just got home from the range (no, not golf driving range).... This time, I packed a lunch and drove all the way out to the George Washington National Forest, out past Staunton, VA (I-64 & I-81), 2+ hours away each way. I brought my 1911 .45 ACP with me, and my Savage .308 rifle w/scope. Typical...

    Just got home from the range and cleaned my RIA FS 1911-A1, .45 ACP (the Rock Standard with the ambi safety).... This is my best target from about 10 yards away at the indoor range. Still a hair low and left, with a huge grouping obliterating a section of the target. Weird when you consider...
