    I finally asked about an RIA 1911 at a gunshop. It is NOT Mass. Compliant! Kinda expected. But, they had a nice Auto Ordinance in the showcase. It was similar looking, with the dull finish, and GI sights, but cost more too. I think it said....$800, or thereabouts. Bob

    $800.00 for an Auto-Ordnance? I need to open up a gunstore up there!!! Wonder why it isn't compliant, very well-built guns, RIAs.

    Mass. has very strict rules on gun manufacterers. They even have to supply some guns to be tested by the state, before they are approved, and can be sold in this state. Bob

    Well, I went out an bought a new RIA Tactical. $450 out here in CA. Sweet guns for the money, my goodness! This will be my camp/fishing/truck gun. Reliable as any Colt I have.

    Picked up my RIA Tactical a couple weeks ago. You all know what they look like, but here it is with VZ grips.
    Great fit and finish of parts, smooth running slide and safety.
    Just a short range report.

    Cleaned and lubed new gun with Gun Butter products (oil and grease). Initial range range report: 200 rounds of 230 gr. WWB ball, 50 rounds of 230 gr Federal HST, 50 rounds of 230 gr Winchester Ranger T. All performed without any FTF or FTE.
    Three of my prefered magazines were used with all ammo types, 7 round Checkmate with hybrid feedlips and skirted/dimpled followers.

    The provided ACT mag was used once for each ammo type just to see if there was any issues. None during this session.
    POI at 15 yards was 1.5" left (about 10 o'cock) of POA. (Not shooter induced)

    I found a local shop that has a 3.5 inch model. Going there later this week to see if I can trade my way into it....

    I'd really like to hear how that works out for you, amigo - I'm fixing to turn 45, it's the 100th anniversary of the 1911, and an RIA "Officer's Model" sounds kind of appealing.

    I bought one new, 38 Super, great pistol. Fire evry time, no problems.
    Others report similar results. Good product in my experience, I would buy another.

    I am waiting to get their new hi-cap 9 mm/22 TCM "Micromag" version 1911.
    Double stack 18+1.
    I saw it at the NRA convention and heard about it after SHOT.
    It is supposed to hit the streets any day now for $540 with both barrels.
    Fred Craig is custom building these same guns but with a nicer finish for around a grand.
    You use the same mags for both calibers.
    Every RIA I have handled has been impressive for the cost.
    I just don't need another 45 so another 9 it will be.
