Anyone have one or know anything about them?
I've seen them at gunshows for around $350.
I'm looking for a cheap 1911 to tinker with,like a RIA or something else in the 300-350 range.

I bought a CD for my first 1911. I paid $380 for it about 6 years ago. I has been 100% reliable since switching to 47d mags. It's more accurate than I am. I'm happy with the buy but it doesn't get touched anymore since buying a USP 45.

......buddy of mine has a cd.....he likes it....knows what it is but says it`s a good shooter.....look at the rock island armory guns too....i have one for a "knock around" g i type gun and for someone who has four colts.....i`m totally impressed with this one......i`m wondering and almost think the ria and cd 45`s are made at the same phillipines operation.......anyone know for sure?

RIA and CD's are both made by Armscorp. However, I believe the final assembly is done at different plants. I have an EFS that I'm tinkering with. I like it so far for what it is, but it's definately no Les Baer. Shoots pretty good, pretty reliable after polishing a few surfaces.

the RIA is a good starter 1911, you won't be dissapointed.
