    Either one can be found for less than $500.

    I have heard and read really good things about the RIA 1911. Anyone out there have experience with them?
    Do you use it for a CCW?

    I just got a tactical, not as good as my Taurus PT 1911, but very good 1911, have a 38 Super too. Will need ramp work to shoot hollowpoins thoough................

    Used to have a 5" GI model. Really liked it. Fed reliably and enjoyed shooting it. Mine came with the flared ejection port and a polished feed ramp, so it was able to shoot hollowpoints. Unfortunately I had to sell it. Currently have a Springfield Loaded.

    I don't think the 5" is a great conceal carry piece. I mean it's slim, but it's kind of on the heavy side. It's cast, not forged. If you plan to get one for carrying, go for one with a smaller barrel.
