Rock Island Armory 51416 1911 Compact GI 7+1 45ACP 3.5"
by david h Date Added: Monday 07 May, 2012
Ordered the RIA 1911 .45 Officer 3.5 in Barrel. I have shot a few full size 1911s in my day and thought i would take a chance on a shorty 1911. Price was half that of any other Officers model and all of the reviews that i read on multiple sites and blogs were all praising this pistol. All said and done i paid 425 for this pistol, added black rubber grips with finger grooves for 15 bucks and a skeletonized trigger for 15 bucks. At 25 yards this tiny but well made pistol held a tight group. Put this little baby through the ringer firing FMJ and several types of JHP rounds. 200 rounds as fast as i could load the mags without even a hiccup. This gun is covered with a heavy oil out of the box but is very easy to take apart and clean. I am sold on RIA firearms, will be ordering a full size as soon as possible. This is a great shooting starter 1911 that with about 100 bucks rivals the name brand 1911s.
