Rock Island Armory 51416 1911 Compact GI 7+1 45ACP 3.5"
by Matt M Date Added: Sunday 22 July, 2012
First off, excellent and fast service with Buds, third purchase! Thanks Bud!

This pistol is a dream out of the box. No failures at all!! No failure to feed. No failure to eject.

Granted I only pushed 100rds thru it so far. Used cheapo steel cased ammo.

As far as looks go, nice parkerized finish, wood grips are okay..I'll be swapping for black rubber. Back strap is grooved but front strap is smooth - wish it had checkering. Thumb safety is standard (not extended).

This is a work horse pistol, not a showcase pistol. I recommend this pistol as either a utility pistol or first-entry into 1911's.
