    Nice looking 1911. I'm debating between purchasing a XDM 9mm or the RIA compact after I sell my Glock. Just have to figure out if I want higher capacity or larger rounds in my purchase.

I like the looks and the oh so smooth trigger pull now. When you work on these handguns yourself you get a true appreciation for the true genius of JMB. Also as far as RIA quality as opposed to more hi end 1911 makers. I have had many different 1911 apart over the years including Colts, Kimbers, Paras, Dan Wessons and Springfields and with the RIA I see nothing internally that makes me think its less gun. Great 1911 platform for the money, I still have less than $400 in this gun total, thats hard to beat.



    Well, there you go, ruining a perfectly good GI pistol with all that fancy-dancy customizing stuff. Just couldn't leave it alone, could ya?

    You're probably the type that would take a nice classic VW Beetle and stuff a Porche engine in it to make it run better.

    Well, so would I! Again, nice gun.
