Heterosexual male secures RIA!

So I’ve rescued the Rock Island Armory GI 1911, 9mm, from layaway and background delay. It is basic and I’ll shoot it for a while with military sifgts, but will definitely put some decent sights on this spring.  
HeHe will now join his brothers, GSG .22, and Springfield Armory 45acp!

My fiancé, a female, has yet to lay eyes on this beauty, but I’m sure it will get a good eye roll.  
Since we’re in the process of getting a fair amount of snow, range reports may be delayed.
Happy New Year!

    Nice grab...the only thing I dislike about RIAs is the grips...I replaced mine with a set of Magpul 1911 grips...inexpensive, very functional and grippy...otherwise, nothing to do to them but shoot them....

    Yes.....grips will also be switched out. It’s going to be a fun pistol to tinker with.

    I'd be rounding me up the biggest case of 9mm I could carry for that one.🔫

    As a base model, it looks good. 

    Id spend too much time switching out parts to make it fiscally productive.
