Rock Island Armory 1911 Tactical 45 ACP 5" Parkerized 
by Jacob R
Date Added: Monday 16 July, 2012
First let me say I have not shot this puppy yet and am only basing this review upon the quality of the parts when disassembling everything. Field stripping is very easy and I use the mag to push the recoil spring down to field strip. All the inside parts seem to be of very good quality metal and fit together very tightly. The only real downside I have seen so far is the barrel ejection port that is stainless not parkerized is somewhat stained. I am confident if I buff it, it will come out but other than that and what seems to be a very thin finish that scratches easily everything is fine. The reason I do not take any points off for finish or ejection port is because 1, its purely cosmetic, 2 the price of this gun doesnt require me to expect a perfect finish. Dont get me wrong the gun still looks great and the coating is very even across the entire gun. Trigger pull is great and the safetys have a nice lock in. I do wish the mag release was amphi however.
Great service from buds. Shipped fast and was exactly what i wanted!
