Rock Island Armory 51615 1911 Standard GI 9+1 9mm 5"
by Joe R Date Added: Friday 17 February, 2012
I was impressed with the appearance and part fitting on my 1911 GI 9mm pistol.
I wanted to purchase a Tactical version but none were available. So far I've put 350+ rounds through it, the magazine (stamped Checkmate) doesn't want to hold 9 rounds.It
functions well with 8 or less, but frequent stovepipe type misfeeds result when 9 rounds are loaded..usually.There have been times I could load & fire all 9 rounds without incident,
but too often the mag spits out 1 or 2 rounds from the mag after the first of 9 loaded rounds is fired. As the pistol came with only 1 mag, I soon started looking for extras,only to learn they are currently hard to find ! Accuracy was a pleasant surprise..remarkable even, despite the small GI sights on my model. Hollowpoint bullets seem to hang up on the frame, instead of feeding onto the chamber.Again, after persistence attempts, I was able to run 3 magazines of hollowpoints without hangups. A ramp polish may be in order. No feed problems with roundnose rounds. In summary, despite the feed problems and magazine issues,I feel this is a very good to great pistol for the $$$.The owners manual does state a 500 round break-in is needed..I'm hoping a different mag may resolve mentioned issues.
