Rock Island Armory 51431 TAC 1911 FS 8+1 45ACP 5"
by Timothy B Date Added: Monday 28 May, 2012
The 1911 arrived quickly once payment cleared the bank and had to immediately be cleaned - it was one greasy gun! On my first outting I ran 50 rounds of WWB 230 Grain FMJ through the gun and experienced three failures to feed - 2 nosedives and 1 failure to fully return to battery. I took it home and gave it a thorough cleaning/lubing and ran another 50 rounds through it without a hitch so am attributing the first 3 failure to feeds to the break-in period. I'm not 100 percent certain I would trust this gun in a life or death situation (at least not until I've ran a few hundred more rounds through it) but it shoots well and seems to be a well built gun. Only time will tell if it's as reliable as I'm hoping!
