Rock Island 1911 .45

Anyone have any experience with these? I had been trying to get a Springfield 1911 , but found one of these for over $200 less NIB and people seem to swear by their reliability and some say they are even more reliable than Springers....although i still hope to get a Springer one day as well.
Hope i made a wise decision, am stoked about trying her out when she arrives in about a week...

I own one, its pretty good! The quality and accuracy are very good.

Now: The grips are pretty 'meh', and the sights are a little tough to see, but otherwise its a solid weapon. I had one HUUUGE problem with mine (look up my post history if you want to know), but RIA took care of it for me.


I think they are a low end gun at best. The two Ive handled and shot were rough, loose and felt sloppy. They did however shoot decent. Reminded me of a Norinco. You get what you pay for.
