Rock Island Armory 51632 TAC 1911 FS 8+1 9mm 5"
[51632]
$463.00
by Jonathan D Date Added: Sunday 23 March, 2014
Have about 400 rounds down the pipe. My first observation is that the model shipped had the incredibly obnoxious billboard on the slide, so beware. Most listings on the market currently show a subdued slide, but mine was anything but. I am finding that the front sight post is a bit high, but your mileage may vary. The trigger pull seems very smooth with a subtle reset. The mag drop is a bit stiff, and hard to depress the release sufficiently without using your offhand. A fair number of machining marks still present. Ambidextrous release is stiff and difficult to manipulate if you have small hands like me. But I didn't like the ambi on my .45 Kimber, either.

I'm basically now replacing most of the pins, springs, etc. with aftermarket products, as I'm not quite comfortable with the stock set up. But that's a personal taste thing.

One issue I would attribute to the magazine spring is that I am now getting double feeds, 2 in the last 100 rounds fired. Probably a magazine issue, and I didn't isolate which magazine yet (focused on clearing the gun). I did not see this the first time I shot, so I'll keep watching on this.

And you'll need to replace the grips.

Aside from the billboard, I like this quite a lot!

Bud's price is good.
