Thinking about picking up a 1911 to tinker with.Would this be a good base to start a do it yourself build on ?

I have a RIA 1911 Tatical really nice gun pretty solid made. I did have to file down the ambi safety but that was minor thing. Over all for the price extremely happy with mine. So far I got around 500 rounds thought it.

They very rarely get any bad reports.

Grips and finish are the only complaints I've seen.

Grips are easy to change, finish can be a bit more of a job, but a weak finish doesn't affect anything important. :cool:

The grips do suck thats for sure. There not low quality or anything its just there plan cheap grips. No big deal thought sure 99% of people pefer to change out grips to there liking I know I am.

RIA is a solid brand. Its the perfect tinkering gun or could be left as-is and will run and run. My personal experience with the RIA 1911s I own has been nothing but positive. My RIA compact was my main winter CCW piece and is now back-up to my Ultra Carry II only because I wanted something even lighter.

I'd get one and leave relatively as is.
I would get a Springfield to use as a base.

Those look like some fat grips.
