Rock Island Armory 51421 1911 Standard GI 8+1 45ACP 5"
by Ronald C Date Added: Friday 26 August, 2011
well i took the chance on a $385 1911 , and holy sh*t , it is fantastic. first of all it showed up in 2 days which was awesome to start .
it came in a plastic case that was suitable and comparable to any taurus or cz firearm , nothing to rave about but i half expected a cardboard box .
the gun was well oiled and in perfect shape as far as coating and machining . after a quick wipe down i attempted to field strip it and it came apart well , a little stiff at first but after 50 rounds , it was smooth as butter . the action was seriously wonderful and very fun to shoot as any decent 1911 would be , and i know most would argue but if i was blindfolded i would never know the difference between this and my buddies kimber . only thing not perfect about this weapon was its not american made but for a cheap shooter its hard to talk myself into buying the sig 1911 i wanted when i can have 3 more of these ....i;ll be back for more no doubt and hopefully will write the same review again
also ....only came with one 8rd magazine but it functioned perfect and locked back with both russian steel ammo and magtech brass .
what else can i say 400 buck and 2 days later i was grinning ear to ear
