Thumbs up Range Report RIA 45

Model ROCK STANDARD FS - 45ACPM1911-A1 FS Tac - 51431
Ammo AE 230 grain round.
25yds 2 handed standing.

Quick report of a virgin $400 RIA.I must say I was shooting poorly the day I first shot the RIA.10 rounds of S&W 500 to start day off was a poor choice.Hands are still sore.

100 rounds down range without issue.Weapon has a mechanical feel to operation while shooting.Sights are average to poor.Trigger is as bad as a factory can produce.With that said, a little sanding and polishing will go a long way.Inspecting/cleaning weapon after firing.Leads me to believe,most issues can be worked on.

Bottom line.RIA went bang every time.A little elbow grease,new sights will go a long way in my op.
Taking price in consideration.8.5 out of 10.

Nice report Camp Guard, I like the challenge of trying to get a gun like that to preform the way a 1911 should.

For your sore hands, I found that wrapping them around a rocks glass with a splash of bourbon and some ice helps dull the pain.
