    Where do I go to order the jacket? =D

    Picked up an RIA 1911 earlier this week and just got around to taking it to the range. Put a hundred rounds through it with one FTF (the magazine that came with it supposedly holds 8, but only feeds 7 reliably)

    As we all know, threads like this are worthless without pics! :D

    First mag put through the weapon at 5 yards.

    Nice I have the same one, although I haven't noticed any issues using the mag it came with. Is it the mecgar one?

    They don't usually come with a mec-gar mag... they come with an "act-mag" magazine that holds 8 rounds instead of the standard 7. Sounds like you got lucky.

    I suppose it'd be useful if i were ever involuntarily disarmed by a law enforcement officer... the loose rounds could be put in the magazine. (I'm a 'the glass is half-full' kinda person)
