Took my new RIA 1911 MS to the range today. It ran flawlessly, 100 rounds down range without one hiccup. This was my first try with the 1911 platform. The sights are fixed and my aim was not great. Right to left was fine, up and down was a little off. I am sure it was due to my own issues. Overall I am extremely satisfied with my purchase. Initially, I had issues with assembly/disassembly and it is now under control. While compressing the guide spring I used a leather glove...no problems. I guess I need a few more calluses. For the price I think my RIA 1911 MS is a heck of a deal.
