Well. today I pulled the trigger and ordered an RIA Parkarized 5 inch 1911 in 38 Super. The fiend of mine who had considered a pricey used Charles Daly, also went ahead and ordered the RIA Parked GI in .45. So we got a pretty decent price by ordering the two guns together. And from my local dealer no less. He got the price to where there wasn`t much advantage to getting one off the net, when considering shipping and FFL transfer fees. So I`m happy, my friends happy, and my dealer is real happy. Now I just have to wait until the Guns get here....probably next Monday.
