I cant decide now. Ruger LCP, Taurus TCP , or a RIA 1911A1. Whereas i want a smaller gun than my xd40sc for CC, i shoot 1911s much better than my current pistol, and i NEED one now.

Need more pics!

Well if you get a quality holster and belt that can handle the weight of the 1911, you'll be good to go. 1911's are very thin and easy to carry.

Plus you just stated that you shoot 1911's better than your current pistol, and to me thats the number one criteria for a defensive handgun (I consider choosing a handgun in a service caliber a given. And the LCP and TCP are not).

Get the 1911!

On a side note....who's got the best prices on these right now? I'm thinking about getting one and building it up.

the ria 1911 tactical is a pretty sweet gun as is. ambi safety with i think novak cut sights. only thing i'd want to do with mine would be night sights, grips and possibly front grip stipling.

Mine looks different now.







I bought some Colt Series 70 grips that a guy took off and replaced with custom grips on his gun. IF it would have been my gun I would have saved the original grips.

He said they were only on the gun for a week, They look like new.

Most underrated 1911's out there!!

I got a compact tactical that shoots more accurately AND is more reliable than my buddy's Kimber.

Here's my RIA MS. Or, what's left of it, anyway.

I have the non tactical model w/the crap sights. Where can I ship this thing to get quality sight work done?

How about some RIA retro BBQ bling? My nickled .38 Super paired with a BUL M5, also in .38 Super. Variations on a theme, if you will.

Sorry about the poor pic.

Could you please post more pics of your gun. I'm looking really hard at getting one of these and all of the pictures I find on the web are of poor quality.

This is all I've got on photobucket right now. I used them for questions people have asked. IM me if you want anything specific. David
Some one asked me about the rear sights. A few have dots. From what I have seen most are plain black

Front sight I filed down for a 6 oclock hold. These are not exact Novak sized cuts.

Polished barrel hood. Looked satin like the rest of the gun.

Someone asked about how the ambi safety was held in.
