The Rock Island Armory 1911
"Well, there’s price, price and did I mention price? For the money, I think this gun is an excellent value. The Rock Island Armory M1911A1 would be an excellent “first gun” for someone who wants to try out the M1911 platform without over-committing resources. Based on my testing so far, it has the reliability and accuracy to serve in the personal defense role. It might be able to go places with you where you wouldn’t want to take the “safe queens.” And, by the way, I still haven’t cleaned and lubed it, and it’s still running fine."I still have not shot a RIA 1911, and with my stable overflowing with this type of pistol, I don't forsee purchasing one. If a man is wanting to try the platform on a budget though, I trust Syd's recommendation. Here's more.
