Unless you are in some never before mentioned place that still has dirt cheap prices for guns.... you got a deal, even if the pistol has a problem and needs work.... just my opinion.

Oh and speaking of 1911's, I'm not a 1911 guy but a Sig p series one.... I do own a Springfield though. I have a good friend, retired Marine D.I., who loves his 1911's and I talked him into joining me a few years back at the Sig Academy and we took a shooting a pistol at a distance class... you've never seen a bigger smile on a Marine as when he was hitting that steel body silhouette with a Sig 1911 at 120 yards!

I don't have very large hands. Single stacks fit much better,
but I still have a few double stacks.

I've been very impressed by the one RI 1911 I handled. It was the Cerakote model. I actually purchase one in California, and then my dealer in turn sold it to another buyer before my pick up day expired. (Very bad form of the dealer.) That one was tights on the slide, and had a beautiful crisp trigger. It actually felt better in the shop than the Kimbers that were near twice the price.

They are very responsive and sent me (for free) the proprietary bull barrel supporting reverse recoil spring plug and the spring I needed. I bought a pistol in pieces that the original owner was too stupid to figure out how to put back together and ruined that part along with the spring.

I picked up 2 over 10 years ago now. One in 9mm and one in 45. Both have been flawless all this time. They eat every bit of ammo I've tried without any failures.

It came with only one magazine. What would be the best brand mags to buy?

Ed Brown was running a promo on mags awhile back. You send them an old mag and you get a new Ed Brown mag for $10. I sent in some old GI mags to get the deal and when I got the new Ed Brown mags, I tried them in my Citadel. Ran great! The promo is still on.

I've been very happy with my RI 1911a1.

Fires everything I've fed it, jhp to ball to steel case. No issues at all.

Only regret is the GI sites, wish I had gone with a target sight model. Still very effective at the range for plate shoots though




I shall respect you until you open your mouth, from that point on, you must earn it yourself.

I have had several RIA 1911s and currently own 2 that I am super pleased with. My current specimens are a 5 inch 9mm and a 5 inch 2011 with rail in 45acp that is a double stack. I’ve had zero reliability issues and generally don’t upgrade much other than triggers and sights. The 2011 has been my 3gun partner for 2 matches.
