Rock Island Armory 51431 1911 FS 8+1 45ACP 5"
by david m Date Added: Friday 05 July, 2013
Things didn't begin well with this pistol. At the time, the only ammo I could find was light target ammunition. Combine that with a new weapon with a strong, stiff spring and numerous FTL jams were the result (about every 5th or 6th round). A week or so later, I was able to find some different and stronger ammo and the FTL jams stopped.

I used this pistol recently in a Wild Bunch SASS match and fired it all day with no malfunctions at all. It is by far the most accurate 1911 that I have ever used. I have fired a 1-inch group of 3 shots with it from 7 yards, which for me is pretty good. It also has a nice finish with decent grips and I love the way it feels in my hand. I would suggest anyone who purchases this pistol should make sure and get ammo that is strong enough to properly work the action, especially when it is new. However, now that it is broken-in, it even fires target ammo with no problems.
