Rock Island Armory 51421 1911 Standard GI 8+1 45ACP 5"
by Daniel J Date Added: Monday 17 December, 2012
The gun itself is pleasant to shoot. The one problem with it is that the supplied magazine would not feed the last round properly--the round up to the last one would always chamber and fire flawlessly. This was true with two different types of ammunition, one full metal jacket, the other hollow point. I purchased two different 1911 magazines locally. One of those would not feed the FIRST round properly but fed all subsequent rounds. The other worked perfectly, and I have put several hundred rounds down range with it. The low cost of the gun was partly negated by the problem with the magazines. All told, though, I would happily have bought several more magazines and still saved money compared with other 1911s of similar quality.
