First 1911, New RIA Tac

Picked up my first 1911 today, and I love it. Rented a Sig GSR 1911 about 5 years ago, and thought it was fantastic. I knew I had to have a 1911, and now I do. My Wilson Combat lube is on its way, so shooting it will have to wait till then.

TBH those things will run pretty dry... Mine came SOAKED in oil... I took it apart at the range wiped it all off, and ran it...

Take that thing out and blast away... You won't be disappointed...

Thanks guys. I may just add some Hoppes gun oil I have here, and take it out this weekend.

Was wondering what you guys recommended other than wiping it down with a silicone rag? I was considering wiping it with a rag with some break free, letting it sit for a while, then just wiping off the excess, and putting it away. Thanks

Rem-Oil wipes do a pretty good job of keeping parkerizing looking good, and they're not messy. Otherwise I just dab a little Mobil 1 (or oil of preference) on a rag and wipe it down.

Congrats on the RI!

Congrats on the new pistol.

LOL, NO, it ain't me.
I've had 9 different 1911a1's over the years. Can't wait to get back into one. Figure if I'm going to get something I might as well get a Classic design in a "real" ctg. like the good ol' 45acp. Plus I'm a cast bullet junkie and 45acps just love cast bullets if you set em' up right.
Congrats on the new pistol. You might want to pick up some Ballistol to lube it up with. I've been using it for years on everything from my black powder guns(kills corrosive salts) to the modern stuff and it's an awesome lube.
Here's a link:

Thanks

I already got two cans of Ballistol on the way. Should be arriving around mid day/early afternoon on Monday. TN, you think the ballistol is enough to keep the parkerizing in good condition?

Only thing I hate about RIA is they come with those solid smooth wood grips.

Only one I've ever seen come with checkerd grips is the RIA Match I baught.
