Just wondering about the overall experience from those who own 1911's and 2011's.
I bought my RIA 52009 10mm A2 last year as a range toy and paid $579.02.


I'm very happy with it and plan to send it to Hayes Custom Guns to get the $350 Race Ready Package. I haven't decided yet on the $100 DLC refinish yet.


As far as carrying this beast, at 58 Oz loaded my best experience has been using a Vedder Light Tuck IWB (heat gun adjustment for wider frame required). I've resorted to wearing suspenders that attach to my Kore gun belt, allowing much more comfort than having to cinch my belt up so tight.


Took the shoulder pads off though
Range Toy/HD: RIA Rock Ultra FS HC 5" 10mm 16+1
EDC: Glock G23.4/G27.4/G45.5/G19.5 MOS/G26.5
Hindsight is 20/20, foresight, not so much.
