Rock Island Armory 51416 1911 Compact GI 7+1 45ACP 3.5"
by Loyd B Date Added: Thursday 03 May, 2012
First off Buds was great.
As for the gun upon inspecting at my FFL noticed it was a real solid feeling gun and coated with oil but nothing too excessive. Hit it with a quick wipe down grabbed a box of ball ammo and off to the range. Grouping was OK nothing real impressive but not unacceptable either cant expect match accuracy out of a 3.5" barrel however the groups seemed to tighten up the more i shot. The sights are probably what i like least about the gun the front blade allows too much play in the sight picture but still could hold center mass at 20 yards after i adjusted for the sight being off out of the box. I will probably change them out for night sights.
Trigger was pretty smooth out of the box, not super light but light enough and crisp. Reliability I only put 50 through it yesterday but I had 0 issues functioned flawlessly. I am giving 4 stars simply because the sights could be better and it could come with 2 mags. Cant give 5 stars to something that isn't perfect right?
Everything said I love this gun and would recommend to anyone looking for a solid 1911.

Rating: 4 of 5 Stars! [4 of 5 Stars!]
