Tell me about Rock Island 1911's. I converted to all Glocks, but used to love my Kimber 1911 45 I had. I may have a wild hair to get this one. My dealer pricing has these "on sale" and it's tempting. And Yes, I absolutely love the 1911 with the tactical rail. I use it with a light on the pistol all the time.

RIA makes great low priced 1911's. I have a GI model in .38 super and haven't had any failures after several thousand rounds. 1 1/2" groups at 25 yards are pretty easy with both handloads and factory ammo.

I've handled and shot several other RIA models and the fit/finish and accuracy has all been about the same. not perfect but hard to beat for the money. my biggest complaint is the serial number on mine isn't stamped, it's raised. I had intended at some point to do a little work to the gun and then blue it but i'm thinking the raised number is going to be a pain to work around.

my next RIA will be a commander size 10mm.

Keep in mind, the 1911 was designed at a time when skilled labor costs were very low, skill quality was very high, and men took pride in their work - pretty much the opposite of current society.

All 1911ía are not the same anymore than plastic pistols are all the same.

There is a RIA subforum at 1911forum.

Can't go wrong with the choice. I really enjoy shooting my Kimber in 10mm.

We have that model but in the 22TCM/9mm combo and absolutely love it. Ours is the double stack, so it a little heavier and the grip is thicker which works better for me. Neither round has any recoil and target acquisition for follow ups is very easy.

Itís not a Kimber, Dan Wesson, STI, and it doesnít try to be. Itís a darn good shooter with a good trigger for the money. The fit and finish is good, not perfect, but for what we wanted it for, a deer lease toy, itís perfect.

I bought a Rock Island Tactical a few years ago that was in very poor condition. I bought it as a project. Took it completely apart, tightened the slide a little, polished it, and refinished the entire pistol. It was smoothest most reliable and accurate 1911 Iíve owned under $1000. I had $425 in it. Iím not sure about the original fit and finish but I will say it appeared to be of decent quality steel and remains tight and smooth after several thousand rounds of factory 45 acp. Sold it to a coworker and heís still shooting it regularly.

That is a very high level of accuracy from both the pistol and the shooter.

Congratulations on both.

Hang onto that pistol.

Chad,

Last time I was there, Rifle Gear had a couple of the double stacks as well. Go fondle one. The grips are thinner so they are not that much wider. Width is very close to a Glock 20/40.
