Rock Island Armory 1911 Tactical 45 ACP 5" Parkerized 
by Jeff Q
Date Added: Saturday 03 September, 2011
Ahh Yeah Baby !!! This is one bad boy!!! I would much rather have 3 of these than one Kimber. This gun shot better groups at 20yrds than my S&W Sigma .40cal at just 5yrds, Im not joking this gun will out shoot you trust me, and the recoil was there but it was soft and very mild on the wrist unlike my Sigma .40 which is a very snappy pistol. After firing my .40 for around 5oo rds I was expecting this .45 to jump clean out of my hand but instead I was pleasently suprised at its docile nature. All metal guns definatly feel better handling recoil and this baby is wonderful. Not as pretty as the Kimbers but I got my eyes on those Diamond Back Rattlesnake Grips on ebay and that will give the Rock the look it needs. Night sights are also something I will be tracking down soon, but trigger was nice and will only get better with time. Slide is still tight but again... time. 50 rds of cheap PMC Bronze and not one FTE FTF or FTH (Failure to HIT) It hit its target EVERY SINGLE ROUND folks. Do not buy a Kimber until you have one of these Rocks first. If you have $1200+ burning a hole im your pocket then have at it but for a 1911 that is uter reliable and acurate to ridiculous standards for under $450 and thousand rounds ammo for around $350 you still have $400 to put toward what ever. Don`t ever tell yourself "Maybe I should Have Bought the Rock Island Tactical"... Say it again ROCK ISLAND TACTICAL !!!!!! Now go hit the BUY NOW button! You will be impressed. Thank You Buds! You guys ROCK
