    What's the rod on these 1911's? Are they as good as my RIA? I'm looking for an officer's model and found one, but I don't know how good it is.

    Thanks.

    If you like the RIA you will like the CD. Well built 1911's. The early models had a few problems,mostly mag related but the problems were overcome in time. Quality control improved and the CD 1911 was an accurate,reliable pistol. I have owned a couple of them and never had any problems.

    I hope the check comes in really fast. Then send the CD to me for proper breakin ( also send lots of ammo). I'll return it when the ammo runs out. :D

    Just remember to replace the recoil spring more often than normal and use good ( Wilson ) mags and you shouldn't have any issues.
