Rock Island Armory 51417 1911 Midsize GI 8+1 45ACP 4.25"
by paul h Date Added: Monday 21 October, 2013
I am very pleased with this pistol. I have shot a few RIA guns friends of mine have but not this exact one. All of them shot well for me and the owners had no complaints at all with them. I wanted the G.I. style because, well that's what I like. Spur hammer, regular grip safety and stock sights. Here is the only complaint I have with this gun is the sights. They are too small and hard for my 51 year old eyes to see. The rear notch is too shallow and narrow for me. YMMV. I prefer the higher profile that the Colt G.I. has. That was easily fixed with a $50 purchase from Brownells. So far I've put 225 rounds of 5 different brands of FMJ through it with not one failure of any kind. I'm not sorry at all that i bought this gun and I strongly recommend it.
