    Updated range report RIA tactical

    well as some of you have read before i was having accuracy problems out of my rock, and it was shooting groups about a foot wide at 10 yards while shooting from a rest. So today i got it back from my local gunsmith who did some good work to it.

    he was shooting 230gr blazer .45 at a range of 25-30yds. below are some pictures of how he adjusted everything (had to mill the front site)

    I like those grips. Always had the finger groove, wrap around on my previous 1911's. So what all actually had to be done to cure the accuracy problem? I looked at RIAs first, until Taurus came out with the PT1911 which is more than likely what I will end up going with.

    I have a RIA Govt model and I had King Tappen front and rear hardball sights installed.

    I did use a blind file to widen the notch in the rear sight, older eyes don't you know.

    This allowed more light to be visable on each side of the front sight and gives me a better sight picture.

    I can shoot the gun into a 8 rd group 2-2 1/2 inches or less from a sandbag rest at 25 yards.( with the front dust cover resting on the sandbag and the grip hand held.)

    This is with Winchester white box 230 Gr FMJ Wal Mart purchased ammo.
    With handloads the groups get slightly smaller.

    I am not sure what accuracy the gun is capable of, if it were shot in a Ramson rest.

    the gunsmith milled down the front sight, and moved the rear sight to the right just a bit (you can tell from the top down view). I love the grips too, i really like the pachmeyer wood and rubber finger groove grips also
