[5 of 5 Stars!]I would love to know how people get their guns in three days. My payment cleared my bank on the tenth and I got the gun today. (31 Dec.) Two day shipping took eight days
As to the gun: This is my second Rock, the first being the low end .45ACP, which is a great gun. But this is super. It is a true 10mm, not a .45 with a 10mm barrel. The slide is a bit heavier than a 1911 and the barrel is full diameter its entire length. (There is no bushing.) But the recoil spring is a whole new design and quite stout. I read somewhere that you should put a 20lb spring in it if you wanted to shoot real 10mm ammo, well I don't think it will fit regular 1911 springs and the one that is in it may well be 20 lbs. I have only fired 10 rounds through it (it's cold outside) but no problems. I got about a four inch group at 25 yards under less than desirable conditions. I want to really ring this thing out. When the weather gets warm I want to see how it compares (at the range) to my $1100 Kimber. So far I think the Rock is a better gun.
Fit, finish, trigger are all comparable to a gun costing twice as much. I will know better after a thousand or so rounds but I have no qualms about shooting real ten ammo in it. (180 gr. bullet at about 1250 fps)
I wish they would include a disassembly tool and a second magazine. The first time I take the grips off I will remove extra piece so my other 10mm 1911 mags will fit. The disassembly is different than a 1911 and the accompanying book is no help. I found a description on the NRA page. Once you get your little tool set up right it is easy.
Overall, I'm extremely pleased.

[3 of 5 Stars!]Guns looked as expected. Buds does a good job of getting the firearm to your FFL in a quick and timely manner. Unfortunately, the firearm I received had issues with the hammer coming forward after ejecting the spent casing. With this happening I felt the gun was unsafe to shoot. This was not BudsGuns fault as this issue could only be found by shooting the firearm. It is currently back with Rock Island and I am waiting to be sent a new pistol.
The rounds that I was able to fire showed that the gun was very accurate and the recoil was very manageable. I believe that I just got a lemon, but without a new one to compare it to I have to give it a 3/5. I expect that when my new one comes in it will go back up to a 4 or 5/5Show More Reviews...
