Rock Island Armory 51431 TAC 1911 FS 8+1 45ACP 5"
[51431]
$471.00
by Chris H Date Added: Sunday 05 February, 2012
I've been very pleased with my RIA tactical 1911. The upgrades over the standard model are worth the small price increase, in my opinion. The gun has functioned flawlessly for me.

The quality seems high in all regards except two. One is the grips, but that's probably a good thing since the grips are usually the first thing you replace on a 1911 so that you can personalize it anyway. Replacing the grips made a huge difference and I would probably have done that anyway, so that's a good place for a RIA to save money when producing a bargain 1911.

The other area where quality could be higher is the finish. I am seeing a small amount of finish wear on the grip safety and other friction points. I am also not too worried about this because, once again, the price being so low, I can afford to refinish the gun (duracoat, etc.) if it ends up needing it and have a really personalized 1911 at a bargain price.

Would definitely recommend the RIA 1911 Tac model. It shoots great and looks sharp with a new set of grips on it.
