well I got one of those RIA 1911A1s and went to work on it.....not that it was bad the way it was..... But I put a beavertail grip in it as well as some other little goodies such as, solid guide, heavier guide spring, 3.5# trigger, extended slide release, and a commander hammer. I like the feel of it.....how does it shoot? better than me :roll:

I've seen them for sale and always thought they are pretty good priced. If they shoot as well as the SA and Kimbers, it's a steal.

I've never shot the SA or the Kimbers so I couldn't compare. :( However the price difference even with the extra work I put into it is still quite a bit :D

Aloha Hawk,

Did you do your own trigger work or did you buy a hammer/sear set already mated? 3.5# is an awfully light trigger... 8O

What kind of sights did you put on her? Adjustable or fixed? Hey, got any pictures? :lol:

Aloha,

Tom O.

Hawk,

Which kit(s) did you use. I just picked up a SA Mill Spec and I am considering doing the same. Ambi Safety, Beaver Tail, Commander hammer, full length guide rod and possibly a Wilson speed shute magwell and MSH. I am also looking for something to replace these three dot sights. Something that will not require milling out the dove tail. I hope to do this project w/o a file - just drop in and go. Thanks in advance.

Bruce
