                Real talk, are Tisas and RIA good first 1911s? Found some of them below $500.

                RIA is good to go, just don't expect exceptional build quality but if you need a gun that works and will shoot da boolet, RIA is just fine

                I have one of each, they're both fine. Not as good as 1911's costing 2 or 3 times as much, but still reliable, accurate shooters.

                Neat, think i'll pick one up just for funsies next month. Also whatcha mean build quality? Materials that break easy because of the 3rd world countries they're made in?

                Build quality is okay, like my RIA is an early production model and has some casting defects (at the surface), machining tolerances aren't super tight like the nicer 1911s, and the finish isn't great. But again, it looks like a 1911, functions well and safely. The tisas is head and shoulders better machining quality and finish, but again, isn't as nice as a 1911 costing triple. Some of the parts are clearly cheap but again, they look like they'll be fine for thousands of rounds with a slightly weird finish on the black.

                Reliability is there, more expensive 1911's you pay for overall fit of machined parts, surface finish, and brand name. Even the professional gun reviewers who have $2500 1911s at their disposal say they're fine guns and don't have much to complain about because how inexpensive they are.

                I hate this kind of unquantifiable statements being made about guns, are they reliable or not? Are they made of good metal or will they become dangerously deformed 500 rounds in? Are they finicky with certain bullets or do they eat everything? How about reliability with different brand magazines? "Theyre good but a more expensive gun is better" tells me nothing

                They're all reliable. When you buy a high end 1911 most of the cost is in the precision of the machining and hand fitting to tight tolerances and high quality finishes and custom control features and all that kind of thing. Rock Island mostly makes production line barebones relatively sloppy basic milspec guns with little hand fitting. That's the reason they're relatively cheap. But they don't have any problem working for normal use. They also have another brand they call Citadel which is still mostly production line stuff but they'll give you a little more bells and whistles like beaver tails and nicer hammers and finishes and stuff.

                tl;dr if you're not looking for a competition grade race gun that will impress your friends then Rock Island will probably work for you.

              I CC a P938, my grandmother bought a Micro 9. It's narrower and lighter than the P938, but it also bucks more with standard pressure ammo than my P938 does with +Ps.

              S&W CSX. Dunno if it's good but it checks the boxes.

              They managed to perfectly replicate a glock trigger on what should be a single action platform. How, I don't fucking know.

              https://i.imgur.com/TLCreNE.png

              You can get a 938. It's the same thing but 9mm. I love mine. The only thing that blows about it is that in order to be able to feed and cycle 9 in such a small gun they had to absolutely minmax everything and because of that the feed lips on the mags are too short to reliably hold the top round in the mag when it's not in the gun. It doesn't have problems feeding, but when you chamber a round and remove the mag to top the mag off the next round in the mag will very likely pop out of the mag and fall out of the magwell into your hand or on the floor or whatever. Once in a while when I bend over or crouch down if some pressure goes on my spare mag in my spare holder I'll hear a round pop out and I have to remember next time I'm in the bathroom or out of sight from people I have to pop that round back in the mag. So you aren't really going to be able to practice tactical reloads with it at the range, you'll drop rounds all over the place. But it's not really made for that anyway and if you shoot until empty you won't have to deal with that at all.

              Depends on the ammo,. Rounded bullets, FMJ, Gold Dot etc will pop out since inserting the magazine pushes the 7th round in the magazine downwards and forwards enough that the feed lips no longer have enough grip to keep the 7th bullet in the magazine. Picrel-style bullets don't have that problem since there's less material on the front to be in the way.

              If I had to pick again, I'd still pick the P938. It can handle +P ammo, shoots considerably more comfortably than the Kimber Micro 9, and the safety is (at least for me) set such that it serves as a perfect thumb rest and grip reference point for my draws.

                Its a weird gun, not sure who their market is. It's too modern for fudds and doesn't have any advantages compared to striker polymer guns already on the market.

                Strange. I've run pure XTPs and the American Gunner sub-flavor XTPs and it legitimately just stopped being a problem for me. Then again, I'm usually pretty gentle with my mags outside of a speed reload, so that might be a better cause for my lack of trouble.

                Had one, jamming POS would not recommend

                It's a fucking Colt Mustang clone, dude. Don't fucking limp-wrist it and it won't FTF.

          If you are going to pocket carry, get something with a safety.

    Just get a double action gun. The safety on the 238/938 is practically unusable, especially when you try to pick up some speed. Long double action trigger is very safe, anon.

      I don't have a problem with mine at all. Sweeping it off is second nature after hours of dry fire training over many years of owning it.

    P938 bit heavier than p238, both are good guns

    I like some sort of belt and suspenders safety on EDC guns, you might be in a situation where you need to pocket it or something. Practice the draw tho
