Hello all. I been lurking around this site for a while, and decided to buy a RIA Tactical after reading all the good things said. This is my first 1911 pistol. I must say I'm impressed with the value and quality of this gun.

I do have a couple of questions that maybe you guys can answer: Is the trigger that comes with tactical of medium, or long length? I plan to change it out for a solid trigger. What are the MIM parts on the pistol? Has anyone tried out "drop in" trigger job kits like the ones sold by cylinder and slide?

Thanks in advance.

welcome, '33

you'll be told by the wiser 1911 dudes, that there's no such thing as a "drop in" part for a 1911

my experience has been , some "drop in" parts will drop in, but many will require minor fitting.
No experience with C&S trigger kits

as far as MIM, pret' near all of them are.
(all the small parts anyway)
That's not just RIA, but most other manufactures too now a days

Donno which trigger they use on the tac, think the one on my Gov model is a medium.
I know it's solid too

..L.T.A.

Pretty much all of the small parts on an ria are mim. It depends on the gun on how much mim they have. Colt has 2 or 3 parts that are mim, the new dan wessons have no mim. Sigs had no mim, the 2 I have are mimless, I believe the new ones to be still.

Cap is right on drop in parts, but the c&s drop in ignition kits are excellent and I would bet would drop in an ria. I have thought about getting an ria tactical and doing the same thing aling with a couple other things along with a greider solid trigger. Greider used to be videcki which set the standard.
