Re: Rock Island 1911 45 ACP
Owned a RIA compact officers model with 3.5 barrel. Put over 100 rounds through it. Gave it to my friend. I love the guy, what can I say. Shot well, handled the JHP alright, shot ball really well too. Solid reliable gun.
I also owned a Para GI Expert and Springfield Mil-Spec. Out of the 3 the RIA was my favorite shooter.
