Rock Island Model 51261 M200 - 38 Special
by James L Date Added: Thursday 03 October, 2013
Gun arrived coated in enough oil to lube my whole collection! However, after a good cleaning it was ready for the range. I'm pleased to report it shoots straight and it functioned flawlessly for the 300+ rounds I put threw it already.

It came in a hard case (intended I'm sure for RIA 1911s... Since the foam was cut in perfect 1911 shape and there was a cutout for the mag)... But who cares, it is a hard case.

The gun is solid and a good value, a good shooter--- I highly recommend it. The finish is funky, almost a parkerized or 'matte' finish which makes it hard to clean. All solvents, oils and cleaning lubes are hard to wipe off... And it always looks dirty.

The sight picture is great, easy to pick up... And the gun has a great balance and "point and shoot" feel.

Buds did a superior job with order and shipping... I just wonder why my LGS likes to charge $10 extra for each transfer from the "big box stores" like Buds?
