richcastle: hey tiger,how much did yours run you? I have seen them on the sarco website
for $349.00.Does that like a good price to you?
hallis1: Oh you cheating bastard! you used a barrel bushing tool! :p Guess I need to
get one of those. I've just been using the floor plate of an empty mag to
depress the spring. The full length guide rods are a pain in the ass due to
the shape of the retainer. Nearly impossible to push it in far enough with
just your thumb. I do love my RIA Tactical 1911 though despite that. I'm
going to have to find one of those tools.
c woody: if its Tactical then why do you need a tool to take it a part
Uniform Tango 74: And on another note, this is the 1911. Based on early 20th century design.
Not 21st century design. It's almost like comparing apples to oranges. But
the service length and reliability of the pistol has been proven for almost
100 years. But thanks for your opinion:)
Uniform Tango 74: @beneaththefallen Well I've sold this piece awhile ago, but from my
experience, it's a solid shooter. If you check out my other vids of me
shooting this pistol, it'll tell ya. My coworker who owns it now says it's
a beast with his handloads. He uses 185gr HPs and they're on key at 25
Uniform Tango 74: @keslakemcr Factory sights upgraded by me using titanium white paint to
make my own version og Glock sights for it.
kringle02: I have the full size ria 1911 does the compact shot as good . I could not
believe how good the full size shoots any info would be appreciated
Rcore270: thats....sooo....sexy.....LOL nobody lies to a .45
Uniform Tango 74: The trigger is stock but I sanded off the finish since it was already
wearing out. I really like the Hogue wraparound, but since this vid I threw
on your standard double diamond panel Hogue grips in Coyote Brown. Its
looks really nice now.
johnnyreb2041: anybody know where i can get the owners manual for this gun (free)
Uniform Tango 74: That was a barrel bushing wrench.
Uniform Tango 74: @Alexn1067 Since the FLGR came with it I didn't feel like I needed to swap
Uniform Tango 74: LOL! You got it!
richcastle: nah ,thats the price for the GI model.They have the tactical listed for
395.00.did those wrap around grips come with your gun?
Uniform Tango 74: The great thing about the firearms industry is that there is a firearm for
everybody. I know people who sware by Sig, but hate H&K. Others love the
venerable 1911, like me, and could care less for the Glock. It's all a
matter of preference. I've handled Rugers, and could care less for them. If
simple breakdown is what you're talking about, nothing is simpler than the
Soullessnut: i ordered mine yesterday. gonna get some punisher grips for it just because
they look so awesome.
Uniform Tango 74: @mixwell1983 The tacticals do.
Uniform Tango 74: The reason I didn't add dialogue is because there is a pletora of vids on
youtube that show the disassembly of the 1911 with voice. I'd say the ONLY
difference in my vid is that my 1911 has the full length guide rod. But it
does not change the basic breakdown of the pistol. Sorry bout the
boringness, but have no fear, more vids will be coming.
Uniform Tango 74: I sanded my recoil spring plug and removed all the finish that's why it
looks like a stainless steel plug. Other than that, I've shot about 1K
rounds through it. I'm sure that helped smooth out some rough edges.
Uniform Tango 74: NP man. Just helping out where I can:)
Uniform Tango 74: I went back to this grip when I got another Hogue set(standard two piece in
coyote brown), took it out and didn't shoot as well. Put the one piece
Hogue back on.
AirbornePathogen: One of the few things I don't like about my RIA 1911, or any 1911 for that
matter. I like being able to strip a weapon without tools, like my SIG.
Just bout my RIA, can't wait to take it to the range!
Uniform Tango 74: Oh I know what you mean. I didn't want to go that far. I've taken this baby
down to bare frame. But thanks!!!
Christian Rush: @UrbanTiger74 Haha really though, I'm thinking about buying that same gun.
How do you like it?

beneaththefallen: How do you like your RIA? Right now I'm torn between the RIA tactical
Nickel and a Para-Ord GI Expert SS. The RIA is about a hundred bucks less,
and has all of the goodies. The GI Expert has less bells and whistles, but
is SS not plated. The fit of the GI is very good with no rattle/ play. I've
heard the RIA's are the same way, but have never personally handled one. I
was just wondering your thoughts on your RIA?
adrianrubi: is the shock buff standard on the RIA?
mdThanatos: @TheDrewcifur Its a barrel bushing wrench. Some manufacturers will supply
this with the pistol. You can also use the magazine to depress the bushing
plug to allow the bushing to move.
BlackTalon9x19: Where can I get a 1911 compensator exactly like the one used by Frank
Castle in the movie "The Punisher" with Thomas Jane?

gmodesike: check out brentnowell's disassembley of the 1911. you are only 30% done.
graysmoke89: lol star wars music in the background, i must really be a nerd for knowing
PandaBoy007: John Williams is a genius and Rock Island 1911's are actually impressive.
You get a lot for the price.
Uniform Tango 74: NP. When you decide to field strip again, just take your time and make sure
you don't miss a step during the process. It sounds like the guide rod
might be binding up just a bit when you try to remove the slide from frame.
Next time, turn the pistol upside down or almost upside down and then
remove the slide. Sometimes when you take the recoil spring out the guide
rod jumbles around in the frame causing tension. Just take it slow and be
Uniform Tango 74: Alot of places sell them. Mostly custom shops, but you can check Brownells,
Chip McCormick maybe even Wilsons. Expect to pay alot since you need a
longer barrel and the cost of the compensator. I also think the barrel
needs to be threaded. But you may want to check on that.
Uniform Tango 74: I had the compact but sold it. Shot fine. After 3 mags and it getting
dirty, it started to have FTFs. Could've been the mags though. I figure, a
person usually carries three mags and if you got into a situation, well,
there isn't any time to reload the mags. LOL. So in essence, it would work
as a carry pistol. I sold it because .45ACP started getting scarce and
expensive, so I let the little brother go.
De908: haha i love it. he should have did the break down on like a bench next to
the beach at sunset. that would have been perfect! :)
mixwell1983: The RIA's come with a full length guid spring rod don't they ? I have the
Armscor firestorm but I think mine is a GI model with the short guide
spring although they're kinda under the same roof from what I hear.. If you
have the a gi extra set of rod and plug you should put it in and try to
field strip it and reassemble it, there was a challenge video on it and a
lot of people (including myself) posted a video.. Its kinda fun for craps
and giggles if you get bored..
c woody: @UrbanTiger74 ooo ok i see thanks for the info
Alexn1067: I don't get why so many people are into the full length guide rod. it
really serves no purpose in terms of functionality. Looks I guess if that
is your concern.
cianw10: i like guns.
Uniform Tango 74: They also look like beer bottle openers. LOL!!! Which they might actually
work for too. Yeah it makes for an easier job. Wilson makes a polymer
version so not to scratch the metal, but one can be careful enough.
Uniform Tango 74: Yeah man. Makes thing easier. Yeah FLGR are a bit of a pain that's why the
bushing tool is a major plus.
bonejhong101: tiger if i cn find a military green color(correct me if im wrong)my ARMSCOR
1911 well looklike kimber pistol because of its large front and rear
tellmeitsnottaken: Not a bad vide, but why did you have to have the classical music instead of
commentation? I was actually very interested with your video of you showing
the different functions of the gun and whatnot, but this was just boring.
Uniform Tango 74: Star Wars: Across The Stars by John Williams.
Uniform Tango 74: @beneaththefallen The ONLY reason I sold it is because the lack of .45 on
the shelves these days. I know RIA now makes a 1911 in 9mm which has caught
my eye. I wouldn't hesitate buying another RIA.
Uniform Tango 74: That's just awesome. Congrats on the CCWs/CHLs.
