Rock Island Armory 51421 1911 Standard GI 8+1 45ACP 5"
by Adam C Date Added: Wednesday 14 September, 2011
Amazing! Fit and finish is incredible for the price. Metal is metal so why pay $900 for a Springfield when this is same quality for less than half price. The trigger is a little sloppy though. Mine came with an 1/8 inch of creep and a crisp but hard trigger pull. Still more than adequate for a non competition shooter. Only other "con" is the smooth grips. They will probably need replacing. Tactical model from RIA might be the better buy for anyone thinking about adding any upgrades to this. No problem feeding FMJ but haven't tried any JHP yet. Came packed in plenty of oil and the parkerized finish looks great.

On the bud's end...It did take 2 weeks to receive. 4 days to process ACH payment and another several days to have it shipped from warehouse. 2 week wait isn't relevant for a weapon I'll have for a lifetime but be prepared for some anticipation.

Fantastic 1911!
