Did this video help you?

Uniform Tango 74: LOL! No doubt fellow 1911 enthusiast.

pineville85: @shocktokyo Just bought this gun. I was very impressed with it. There are some upgrades that I would like to make however. Do you or anyone else have any suggestions for sights?

1911heaven: Haha! You were doing this almost as if it were a cult ritual with the music in the background! I love it! There is something about a 1911 that grabs you and never lets go and having just one is rediculous:)

shocktokyo: what type of sights do you have on this 1911? they look like Glock sights(from what I saw). i don't own a Glock but have always thought their sights are pretty cool. my DE 1911 has "target" sights aka sights with no markers on them, so i am looking to upgrade to some real sights. thanks.

Uniform Tango 74: Hey Buzz. The full length rod supposedly helps wiht accuracy and there is a lot of debate on that, but since it came with a full length, why change it? Back to your problem, have you tried different mags besides the wilson mags? The factory mags work VERY well for me.

NRAMember09: wow man thanks for the quick reply!! im really diggin this gun (RIA tactical). how much did you get yours for? where should i start looking? thanks again man!

Uniform Tango 74: I painted mine. Glock style. I used white acrylic paint since it's easy to clean if I messed up. I also used masking tape to make the stencil for the rear sight. That was a little tedious. Once I got the sights squared away and the paint dried, I lightly soaked a q-tip with polyurethane and lightly dabbed it on the sights to weatherproof my work. So far it's holding up.

Uniform Tango 74: It's a great entry level 1911. Best bang for the buck too. I got mine over a year ago for $450. They're still running about the same price. If you really look you can find them for $400. Check centerfiresystems and sarco inc. Good luck!!!

MRIVERA4396: dude where did you get that tool from? great vid

taurus1911357: Thanks for the feed back

Uniform Tango 74: For the most part it stayed solid. Very little jiggle. It's been so long ago I can barely remember.

Uniform Tango 74: Thanks man. There are too many .45 authorities on the net. I have no intention of stepping on those toes. I just wanna show what my specific 1911 is like. Only because there are other RIA tactical owners who might need the help.

Uniform Tango 74: There are a lot of great 1911s out there. The wallet is the true decider of what kind of pistol you want. As for me, I'm what's called the frugal warrior. The Rock Island fit my bill perfectly. A little over $400. A step up from there would be the Taurus PT1911 and then Springfield's line up. After that Para Ordnance and Kimber.

youtah676: Great Music to go with the Ease of putting this amazing piece of equipment together.

taurus1911357: do you think it helps with preventing wear on the gun

Uniform Tango 74: Take one out of the package, slip it on, send some hammers down range and see how it feels. Noting beats personal experience to decide what goes on "YOUR" weapon;)

Uniform Tango 74: @mailman760 Thanks chief. Glad I could help.

Chris Felix: Im intrested in buying a 1911, which brand of the gun do you think is the best?!! Awesome vid by the way!!

dustystix76: i have the older model RIA 1911A1 that i picked up for 450 at a gun show..been really good to me, holds up well, and out of the 400 or so rounds i've put thru it, it's only stovepiped once.

Uniform Tango 74: BTW the tool is called a barrel bushing wrench.

Uniform Tango 74: There is a big argument over this issue. People who believe in them, use them. The people who say they do nothing and dislike them, don't. So realistically, if they do nothing, what harm would it do if one is installed in your pistol? Correct? Don't let the 1911 gurus decide what goes on your 1911. Besides, have you seen what people do to their 1911 to make it "personal"? My point exactly;)

Uniform Tango 74: @keslakemcr Factory. Upgraded by me.

Uniform Tango 74: I like recoil buffers. I'd rather not have metal hitting metal if I can help it. I have buffers on my AKs too and they work really well. I'm using the factory spring. 16 lbs. No probs using that in conjunction with the buffer. Post vids of you testing out your new kit. Would like to see how it performs.

Uniform Tango 74: Those are excellent firearms. As long as they're not airsoft. LMAO! Those will keep you well protected if the Day of The Zombies come. I'll be posting some new vids soon. More AK stuff.

Uniform Tango 74: I just used titanium white acrylic paint and applied the Glock pattern sights. As for the trigger, it's all factory. I haven't done a thing to it but only sanded the finish off to expose the actual metal.

Uniform Tango 74: @MrBoo88 NP dude. Yeah Mr. Williams is a legend.

Jaron Pope: yeah, it was a super simple great video that didnt take 5 hours to show how to reassemble. Thank you very much.

bouncer42: Make sure that when you drop the recoil spring over the full length guide rod that you place the bound side of the spring toward the back of the gun folks, otherwise the recoil spring plug will not keep proper tension on the bushing.

Uniform Tango 74: Anytime dude! Thanks for asking!

NRAMember09: oh one more thing. have you had any personal experience with sarco because ive heard mixed things about them

NRAMember09: alright, cool ill look him up!!

pilot03: Love the vid. Great background music. It seems you love your RIA. I was debating between the regular and tactical but you just may have helped me choose the tactical. What did you use to highlight your sights? Any chance of a table top review or comments on the trigger? Noticed you polished yours. Did you do a trigger job? Thanks

NRAMember09: thanks man thisl be my first handgun besides the glock 19!! i cant wait!!

carrotjuice25: caveman simple, nothing fancy except for that tool i never seen before. thanks.

taurus1911357: How do those recoil buffers work I got some on mine but didnt get a chance to shoot it yet with them

amerikanerfreund: Really useful stuff to the .45 owner...Bravo..!

Uniform Tango 74: Hey man. Thanks. It's rare to hear someone make such a statement. On the net you get one too many unflexible firearm enthusiasts and internet commandos. Nice to hear someone have a willing empty cup. I'm with you on that.

Uniform Tango 74: Check gunbroker and ebay.

Uniform Tango 74: I wouldn't say I'm good. Probably fair or OK with what I know. But practice is the only way to get better;) Thanks for the compliment.

Uniform Tango 74: You'll probably notice a small difference in recoil in your hand, other than that, that's it. If you're wondering how to put it on, your recoil spring guide goes through the hole and then assemble as usual.

NRAMember09: did u get new sights or just paint them? how did u paint if so?

Uniform Tango 74: @pineville8 Depends on your taste. For me, I'd just swap them out with some real Novak sights.

SuckLead: I swear this is the only video on YouTube about reassembly that just gets to the point without a detailed speech about the gun and what mods were made to it. Right to the point. Thank you.

Uniform Tango 74: I purchased only one thing from them and it went smooth. Best thing to do is call them. Check gunbroker as well. There is a seller there that goes by the name of Bellshireguns. That's the person I got my RIA tactical from;)

shocktokyo: @UrbanTiger74 oh sweet, pretty good job on that, they look legit.

Uniform Tango 74: @shocktokyo Thanks. Wasn't easy. Took a super cool hand to do it. LOL!!!

Uniform Tango 74: @keslakemcr Thanks. Painters tape, acrylic titanium white paint, an extremely small brush and a steady hand. LOL!!! I used the painters tape to frame the surface of the sights. Once it was framed with the style I wanted, I painted the exposed surface. To keep the paint from wearing off I dampened a q-tip with polyurethane and rolled it over the paint job. VOILA! A steady hand is most important.

Craig D: nice piece! grip looks comfy

Uniform Tango 74: @youtah676 John Williams is tops.

Uniform Tango 74: @shocktokyo I custom painted those sights you saw. Similar to he Glock. The only difference is I have a vertical bar on the front sight versus the dot on the Glock.
