    Hi, I bought this gun made in the phillippines at my first gun show this weekend - Rock Island Armory M1911-A1 9mm for $380.00, now I can shoot 1911 with 9mm ammo and save some money. I think I did good. It comes with one mag, I need another mag, can you recommend the correct mag for this gun and where I can purchase it? Also, are there any other upgrades that can be added to this weapon? This is the exact gun>>Hi, I bought this gun made in the phillippines at my first gun show this weekend - Rock Island Armory M1911-A1 9mm for $380.00, now I can shoot 1911 with 9mm ammo and save some money.

    BTW, I think you mean RIA (Rock Island) IF you gave $380 for a RRA you should be arrested for thievery. :D

    They are excellent 1911s for the money. Consider them a gateway drug to an addiction you will have for the rest of your life. ;)

    JLA, what's your opinion on the Remington 1911 R1, as a first 1911? Or even a Springfield Mil spec? Both about the same price here $650-$680 range.

    Either would be a good starter 1911. I have not owned an R1, but have owned a couple springers. The R1 will come with better sights. But other than that thay are the same gun in a different wrapper.

    I also love that the Remington is totally built in NY too.
