I have been reading through the post concerning these pistols and have not seen to much lately on this site. I have one on lay-away in one of the larger gun shops in S.E. Michigan. I have also been reading a 'sticky' on a different 1911 forum site and posted the same question there. Now that these pistols have been out for a little while how are they holding up? I have about 2 1/2 months to pick it up but do not plan on waiting that long for it. However after reading some posts concerning them I am a little nervous. The serial number is A418xxx, any idea if this gun will have the updates (new parts) or will I have to expect to do some work on it to make it run? So, how about you guys that have them, would you buy another one?, how about the ones recently purchased?, any problems?
I used to see the articles in the gun mags and say, "What's the big deal about a 1911?, then I bought one, now I have 3, two 45's and a 40 and now I want a 22.
Thanks for any input.
By the way, I just saw the website concerning the RIA, it's a necked down 9mm to 22, really. Not interested.
