The Gun Show is in town this weekend and I'm get'n the itch [again] to purchase a compact 1911 to carry as my primary CCW. I carried a Colt Officers Model about 23 years ago and a few Govs off and on in the last two decades, so I'm pretty familiar with the 1911 platform.
Owner reviews on the RIA C/CT models have been very favorable. The 3.5" bull barrel appears to provide superb accuracy at CQB distances,..and pricing makes this weapon a great buy for the package.
A few questions:
Regarding the Compact;
Do the C's only come with spur style hammer?
Do the C's have a three dot system on the GI sights?
Regarding the Compact Tactical;
Does the CT have a three dot system on the novak style sights?
Does the CT come with ambi thumb safeties?
Is the finish identical on both models? Pros and Cons specific to the weapon..?
How do you carry your C/CT? Photos would be extremely welcomed..!!!
All info, input and commentary is greatly appreciated.
