Rock Island Armory 51416 1911 Compact GI 7+1 45ACP 3.5"
by Patrick G Date Added: Saturday 09 June, 2012
I received this RIA Compact 45 on Wednesday after ordering it on Monday. Fast shipping as usual. It went downhill from there. While the fit and finish of the pistol is very good, you had better hope that you don't have a mechanical problem that needs a response. I cleaned and lubed the pistol and went to shoot it on Thursday. In less than 50 rounds of 230gr fmj, I had 3 FTE's using the factory magazine. After shooting 25 more rounds of the same 230gr ball ammo in 3 different magazines, I had at least 6 more FTE's. I emailed Armscor at the email address provided with the pistol documentation, NO RESPONSE FOR A WEEK. I then called the phone number listed on the same paperwork, and after it was answered, I was told that no one was available to take my warranty questions, but she would have someone return my call. Again.....NO RESPONSE. So while the pistol may be a great value if it works, you evidently can't get warranty service from Armscor/Rock Island in a timely manner.
