RIA makes a very fine 1911. My GI has about 3k rounds fired and no weapon related failures. I had one 'dud' round out of an old box of 'yard sale' ammo. I have shot all kinds of different bullet types as well. This thing is just an all around sweetheart. I love the feel and the fit and finish. It has a very 'no-nonsense' kind of feel to it. Anyhow...go Rock Island!
