Rock Island Armory 1911 Tactical 45 ACP 5" Parkerized 
by Dale S
Date Added: Tuesday 10 April, 2012
Well, I must first say that the Rock Island Tactical arrived a day late. Thankfully itwas not Buds fault but the Postal Service in the area that I live (Northern California). So, onto the item itself. Finish is befitting of a new pistol. Fit is actually very nice for a "cheap" 1911. I haven't taken it to the range yet but I'm sure it will handle JUST fine. One thing you should take into account: I was planning on changing the stock Novak style sights for Tritium filled night sights. When they say style they mean style. The cut dimensions for the rear sights are slightly deeper than the standard Novaks, so whatever yo9u buy will have to be modified slightly.
But again, I must say that the pistol seems very nice and ten days is too long of a wait to claim it. Budsgunshop was expedient in it's order, adhered to my requests to the letter, and when the time comes for a new addition to the collection, I WILL buy from them again. Don't hesitate on YOUR purchase!
