    The Medallion is an Armscor product, made in the same factory, similar but not matching.

    This is a two-tone RIA Tactical-



    I'd buy one if I was in the market for a gun with those features in that price range. I have a RIA GI .38 Super, they're great guns, rugged and reliable. The Tactical is probably the best 1911 deal out there.

    I have a hybrid RIA CS (Compact 3.5", GI sights, beaver-tail). At first it gave me some problems, so I sent it to arnel in NV. He changed the extractor and tuned it a bit at no charge(besides shipping). It shoots fine now, but it has some problems with JHP. Then again, I haven't gone through its "break in" period. Its a great gun, but I'm saving for CBOB.
