Rock Island Armory 51416 1911 Compact GI 7+1 45ACP 3.5"
by Noah G Date Added: Wednesday 13 June, 2012
Recieved the pistol, and I am happy with it. I bought it to be a work horse, and it looks like it will be perfect for that. The finish is ok, with some areas thinner than others. Not heavy duty parkerizing for sure. The fit of the slide to frame is excellent, but the ejection port looks like it was finished out with a rasp, not a machine. It arrived FILTHY, and looked like it had been dipped in oil. After a good cleaning, it still functions very stiffly. RIA recommends a 500 round break in, so Im sure it will loosen up after that. The grips are very nice, and I think I will keep them on for a while. The magazine is excellent and has a very stiff spring, which makes the slide release impossible to work with one hand, but again it is not broken yet. I love the beaver tail, beveled mag well and the skeletonized hammer. Overall, it looks like a good gun and i would purchase another one. Four stars because of the finish, but it was cheap so not a problem.

Transfer FFL was awesome. I will definately be going back to them in the future.
