I have generally favorable opinions of RIA. They're meat and potatoes 1911s. A bad one will come along every so often, but all the ones I've handled personally impressed me with decent triggers and tolerances that were tight without bordering on too tight. I'd have no qualms owning one. Like any pistol you should fire a substantial amount of rounds before trusting your life to it, especially if you already have pistols that serve that pistol. I have no experience with Norinco 1911s.
Know the status of your weapon
Keep your muzzle oriented so that no one will be hurt if the firearm discharges
Keep your finger off the trigger until you have an adequate sight picture
Maintain situational awareness
