So I finally narrowed down my choice between the Springfield GI .45 and the Rock Island Armory, and came out with the RIA Government .45. Picked it up for $310 out the door, brand new. So far it shoots awesome, but it definately needs a new set of sights, the GI sights suck. It came with an 8rd Novak mag, the only problem is if I load it up with 8 rds. i always have a FTF, but with 7 rds. its not a problem. Hopefully the McCormick magazines I am ordering will fix that. I also picked up a couple of flashlights. The brand is Cyclops and they are only $20 at Sam's Club for a pack of 2, also came with 4 CR123A batteries. It was too good of a deal to pass up. The packaging says they are 80 Lumens, even though I don't have anything to compare these by, they seem extremely bright. The body is machined aluminum, and has a push button tail cap. They feel very solid and well built for the price. What do you guys think?
