I would like to know how many of ya own a Rock Island Amory 1911?? I have thought about buying one for possible carry and more for the fun of a low budget 1911 shooter...I have read great things bout this lil jewel but would like to know if anyone believes enough in them to use as a carry piece also?? My other option is an XDM9/40 but I already own a full size XD45TAC so I would like a lil 1911 and cant spend the savings on a nice SA TRP right now.....Thanks

i think that you may get a couple different type answers to your question. some will say buy the RIA and have a new gun now, others will say save up and buy the SA TRP that you really want. I have heard good things about the RIA 1911's so i dont think that you would go wrong with owning one. Now playing devils advocate- what are the odds of you buying the RIA and a few months down the road start wishing you had the SA. If you trade or sell the RIA you will not get as good a re-sale as with some other brands. So you may end up better in the end just saving up and getting the exact one that you want.
