Rock Island Armory 51438 1911 Two-Tone GI 8+1 45ACP 5"
by Mike T Date Added: Saturday 26 May, 2012
Haven't gotten to the range with this yet, but upon initial inspection, the firearm seems to have a finish on it that leaves a lot to be desired. The grips are cheap plastic, which is fine at this price point. And upon receiving this firearm at my FFL it was wrapped in a bag and dripping with oil. I literally held the firearm at the base of the grip with my thumb and forefinger and watched it just drip out of the barrel. Expect to have to tear this down completely to the frame to clean it up. A simple field strip and clean/re-oil isn't going to be sufficient. Also, I know the picture doesn't always depict what the item exactly is, but to anyone looking to purchase this firearm, it does NOT come with the skeletonized hammer and trigger. This isn't a major deal to me, just letting future buyers be aware. I would have given 5 stars had it not been for having to cometely disassemble this thing and clean it up. I'll come back and give another review after I have some rounds thru it. For what it is at the price point paid, not a bad firearm overall w/out being fired yet.
