Fully auto ria




So Saturday i went to the gun show in Wilmington Nc. Walked out with my wallet 800 dollars lighter and a high standard GI 1911 (made by armscor) and a RIA GI standard. I immediately went to the range. High standard shot amazingly. Point of aim was dead on.~(I am only 22 so the GI sights work fine for me )~ decided to load the RIA next. One magazine ofeight inserted. Pulled the trigger once... here comes the kick in the ***... eight rounds down range with one trigger pull. FReaked out not going to lie... cannot call about it until Monday. ONe last thing. Got the Wilson combat drop in beaver tail. However a little cutting will BE in order.

Nah. Ivan (or Arnel) at Armscor will fix him up.

I do not have first hand experience, but have seen several posts talking about how guns have been fixed, with the addition of extra work done to make the gun even nicer.

OH no. Keeping it but getting it fixed for sure.planning on callin Ivan tomorrow morning to see what can be done. I love the pistol. After it went auto on me I put single rounds through it and it was more accurate than me. Love it!! Amazing fit for a "cheap" pistol. Not to worried as I have heard about their excellent service

Sounds to me you avoided a potential accident.Probably a good thing you kept good gun and range safety imprinted in your shooting, cuz that little mishap good have gone pretty wrong if that would have gotten away from ya.
I owuld keep it, but i would also contact the seller and make him aware of what happened. Hopefully he didnt do some tinkering with it(if it was a used gun) or so that maybe he can be on the look out for simular occurances from other buyers, maybe a bad run off the production line...Just my $.02

i had this issue, i had the sear spring on wrong, and the hammer wont lock back. When you have it unloaded, rack the slide and see if the hammer stays back.
