Rock Island Armory 51416 1911 Compact GI 7+1 45ACP 3.5"
by michael w Date Added: Sunday 12 August, 2012
I must say I was skeptical about buying an unfamiliar brand and buying a firearm online. Result is I am a happy customer. Layaway does take a few more days than my instant gratification likes but that is all the improvement I can think of that needs work. Shipping was fast. I followed the suggestions and field stripped it immediately, good idea since it was dripping in oil and took a very fine wire brush to the slide and interior of handle for the magazine and any other part that would hinder function. I also replaced the handles with the Pakmire grips(Awesome). Took it out to the nearest shooting pit and ran a quick box of ammo through it. I just used the cheapo Blazer 230 FMJ. Worked great!! No malfunctions what so ever. I also bought an extra clip, I saw earlier posts about having trouble with other clips and the chamber not staying open after last round. I bought the suggested one from Buds and no problem. oh yeah, description says 6+1 round, the gun comes with a 7 round clip and I bought an extra seven round clip, so it was a bonus. Would suggest this gun to anyone who wants to save a little and not compromise on performance. This will be my personal carry and is a little heavy but love it!!
