Rock Island Armory 51431 TAC 1911 FS 8+1 45ACP 5"
[51431]
$476.00

Well, After several hundred rounds and some sighting in I am a satified Rock Island owner. So far, no firing issues at all. For the price it's no wonder they sell out quickly. Well built hand gun. Accuracy, My Tactical came with the rear sight almost 1/8 inch off in the machining of the sight opening. I failed to notice before my first trip to the range or during inspection at my chosen gun shop at transfer when purchased. I would have kept anyway if seen. I field striped before leaving gun shop. Nothing loose in this pistol. Trigger very short and crisp. With no tools to move the very tight fitting rear sight in its dove tail, yes I loosend allen, its damn tight in dove tail. I ran 50 rounds through just to get a feel for this pistol.
Second range run with dial calipers and brass hammer and brass drift pin I got it sighted in quickly and ran 200 rounds down range. No malfunctions with cheap aluminum cased FMJ 230 grn ammo. I also shot a box of CorBon Power Ball defense ammo at 550 ft lb rating. I like their bullet design. They feed flawless. I used white fingernail polish to paint front sight so it contrast well in sight picture. In case your wondering the nail polish is oil based and very durable for this application. Make sure to clean area of oil first. I will change sights at some point. I added 2 more ProMag 8 rnd clips. They were also flawless. Overall I'm very pleased.
