Rock Island Armory 51421 1911 Standard GI 8+1 45ACP 5"
by Owen O Date Added: Monday 13 February, 2012
260 rounds through the gun on intitial test fire / break in. 5 failure to feed on jacketed hollow points out of 60 rounds. 0 failures to feed on full metal jackets out of 200 rounds. The gun has a little problem with hollow points, further breaking in will hopefully solve the problem. No failures to eject, no failures to return to battery.

Ordered this and an LCP on a tuesday, picked them both up on Saturday. Quick shipping and good service from Bud's. The fit and finish was 4/5. There was one small bubble on the slide in the parkerization that I didn't notice when inspecting the gun at the FFL, but it isn't a huge deal. That was the only cosmetic defect with the gun, and hardly noticeable unless you very very carefully inspect the gun.

The gun is DEAD accurate, shoots right on at 15 feet, 25 yards. I would highly recommend this gun to anyone looking at a 1911, high end or value priced. No problems with the factory ACT mag, wilson combat mag, or remington mag.
Overall, 4.5 / 5 stars.

Rating: 4 of 5 Stars! [4 of 5 Stars!]
