    Range Report RIA CS 1911

    RIA 1911 CS 45 ACP

    Brought her home field stripped cleaned well, finally got a chance to taker out for a first spin.

    First time out with the new gal , 15 & 20 yards drawing from concealed carry, strong/weak hand firing, rapid fire - think I'm going to like her a bit!

    It is about one pound lighter than the GI and you can tell it both carrying and shooting it LOL IT is a blast to shoot though I have long been skeptical on smaller/compact 1911's I may be converted- I think this will be my new EDC

    My first carry gun was a RIA compact 1911 paid $369 NIB and it came with GI sights,accurate as heck reliable with reloads and HP ammo HST/Gold Dots,and very concealable,it also had a better trigger than my $1100 Stainless Colt Commander XSE before I got a trigger job

    Yep I pulled ONE shot first time shooting her

    Not my best shooting (by far) but was to see IF it was suited TO ME for Carry- weak hand , draw and fire etc. the miss was weak hand turning(rushed the shot ) so I can live with that one LOL

    I need much more work with the compact weak hand NO doubt- strong hand did "OK" I think

    I've carried a GI RIA for a long while, found this one and "had to have it" finally got to the range and it' s looking like my new EDC - in fact I'm wearing it now . TO "me" they're the very best thing going anywhere near the price point, they're not "the prettiest" but I carry IWB so anyone likely to see it won't care how pretty the pistol that put them down was

    The .45 in my avatar is a RIA CS that I love. The only thing I've changed is the grips so far (Hogue rosewood). I probably will have the sights changed out soon, still deciding what I want on it. The trigger is sweet isn't it?
