Rock Island Armory 51643 TAC 1911 Compact 8+1 9mm 3.5"
by Charles M Date Added: Monday 06 August, 2012
This is my third Rock Island 1911 and the 1911A1 CS TAC 9 may become my favorite of my three Rock Island handguns. The difficulty in trying to figure which one I like best is kind of like a parent having three kids and loving them all but especially liking one a tad bit more than the rest. This may be the RI that I like a tad bit more. This is a sweet thing that functions flawlessly. For officer 1911's, I have the 45 CS (officer) and the 9mm CS TAC (officer) and like both oh so much. All my Rock Islands shoot when I pull the trigger and hit my target accurately. My best accuracy comes from the 1911A1 government of course because it is full size and has a longer sight radius. But, the two shorty's in 45 and 9mm are accurate enough to satisfy my needs for a compact carry gun. I may not be able to consistently hit a 2" target at 25 yards with the 3" CS's but I can hit a 4" bull with most of the rounds in the magazine in either pistol. If you like the look and feel of the 1911 3" CS 45 cal, but it is a little hard on you at the range, go with the RI 9mm.
