    RIA with light rail?

    Hey guys. First of all thanks for all the good info you are sharing. I'm sold on getting my first 1911 and RIA. I'd like to purchase a GI or tactical for the house. My question is, "has anyone attached a light rail (Tick) and if so did it work out okay?" I'm probably not going to change much other than grips providing evrything else handles well.

    WELCOME TO THE FORUM.
    If I may suggest - get the tactical - the enhanced features is well worth the difference in price.

    RIA does not import a railed 1911 - but there are aftermaket rails that you can add on - someone will come along here that can direct you where to get one.

    So I am sure you will be happy with your new ROCK!

    Skip the GI for home defense unless you plan on adding Crimson Tracer laser grips or redoing the sights. While my GI is a fantastic shooter the sights leave a lot to be desired for low light shooting, which is why I have the CT on it and I do use it thus as my home defense gun, it's in the nightstand. BTW the CT laser is bright enough to skip the light in a dark house at night. I'd agree go with the Tactical model, sights are better all around, I bought my GI for sentimental reasons.

    Most problems can be fixed with the proper application of high explosives.

    First post!
    I have an RIA Tactical with a rail mounted on it. A local gunsmith did the work, and the rail is made by Novak. It's been on for, oh, maybe a year or so now with several hundred rounds down the pipe.
    I'll try to get pics later.
    Here's a link to the rail the smith installed:

    I bought a Tick light rail for my FS Tactical (Thor) and it works great, I just wish I could find a holster that would fit with the rail and the combo laser sight, flash light attached. I highly recommend the Tick mount.
    some people just need a high five...in the face...with a chair.
