Yea I said that but I just ordered a right handed thumb safety as I HATE ambidextrous safety's, a FO Front sight, magwell, and GI guide rod setup(probably keep FLGR but for less then $10 I couldnt pass it up just in case) from Fusion. They gave me a sweet deal being military. I then bought a set of VZ operator II with a magwell cut from a guy in the classifieds. All in all the added pieces cost me $160 extra but thats it other then more bullets to reload and go shoot the crap out of it.Yep committed to not spending $ on anything but ammo for the first 1000 rounds. After that we shall c!! I might polish the barrel because I works across the st. from a polishing shop! But that's it for now!
I ordered one of these as well and like it also. I plan to build a USGI Clone that is as close as I can make a RI GI.Having finally received my Buds Gun shop special (RIA 5" GI mil spec ) for $329.00 the other day I am very impressed with what I received for that price. The fitting and action/ lock-up were nicer than one of my SA's and a WC Colt. No great deal except for the price these RIA guys are selling their 1911's.
Keep up the great work RIA. Best bang for buck in 1911's! IMHO
That is a really nice look you've got going on there. Congratulations on the new gun!Got the same pistol OP, ran 450 flawless rounds through it Friday. I am very happy with it. I did buy a set of the VZ Operator IIs and the magwell that were taken off of a RIA before it was ever shot, got me for 65 shipped!
I'm also gonna put a full 1K rounds through it before changing anything else. Only change I'm really looking at now is Novak NS and a extended slide release.
