Well it is easy and cheap to convert a RIA 38 Super into a 9mm 1911.

How is the quality with Rhode Island? Haven't any experience with them.

Rock Island makes a great quality affordanle 1911 platform. I have several from the compact GI to the full trick Match, all have performed well, way above their respective price points. Seeing as how you might plan to do upgrades it is a solid platform to start with. My best freind in AZ carries one as his OD weapon and has no issues trusting it with his life.
