Does anyone have experience with or own a Rock Island Armory 1911?
There's a nice one for sale at a local shop, super cheap 45. It's used but appears to have only been fired a handful of times.
I've only seen a couple of them, I think they are made by a company called Armscor, but that's about all I know.

Can anyone tell me if they are worth having? I'm working on expanding my 1911 Collection, I love them.

Depends on the price. I had one in 9mm and liked it a lot. Sold it because I decided to downsize my inventory when we were thinking about relocating. At any rate, except for the potential move, which never happened, I would still own it. Only problem for me was it's pretty large to try to conceal, and we can't open carry here. Great comfortable shooter because of the size and weight. I never really cared for shooting 45 because of the price and the recoil, but that's your call.

I have a RIA 1911 Rock Ultra - 9mm. It is really a nice gun and shoots very well. I've only had it for about 4 months and have shot a couple hundred rounds through it without any problems.

I have had a RIA for years and it is a good solid reliable pistol. After it proved itself to me I retired my Colts that I carried for years and carry one now.

AFS, I paid $469 + tax for mine at a lgs here in ohio. Good price and it's accurate. I cleaned it first and put 200 rounds thru it. It takes my other 1911 magazines, too! wtheck!

RIA 1911s are fine weapons. I nearly bought one, but got a better price and the exact feature set I wanted in my Girsan, which is also a fine weapon at an attractive price point.

Sad days guys, I returned to the store to buy it and somebody had already got their hands on it.
Should've picked it up when I saw it. If only I had the $280 last time.

Oh well, if I ever run across another with that good of a price tag I'll definitely pick it up.
Seems to be a popular pistol.

I've got one, the II tactical. It's an excellent pistol but I happened to get one with a bad rear site that keeps slipping. Waiting on replacement.

This is my GI Standard .45ACP. For the money a great shooter and truck gun. I've shot well over 1000 rounds with it with nary a hiccup. A no frills no BS hand gun. I added the Pearce grips.
