Very nice pistols, all.

Bac, that Norinco is immaculate. We passed on more than one of those when they were relatively plentiful a few years ago and wish now that we had not.

Happily, the Rock Island Armory pistols seem to fill the niche of inexpensive 1911A1's nicely just now. We own one RIA, and would like to own more.

We trudge on.

Thanks.

I've got an RIA as well. I like them quite a bit, but don't think they are as well built as the Norinco.

i bought those grips from a forum member a couple of week ago...
i aged it on purpose by throwing 1/2 inch sonoma gold gravel on them(about a dozen shovels), touchups with a magic marker then i waxed it for the WWII effect.not too shabby

bobbed grip safety to complete the look.... arched MSH is from a vintage Colt.

Switched out the Grips.

No, I didn't do it to trick people into thinking I have a Wilson . It was the only G-10 grips available at my store, and Wilson grips are top of the line IMHO.
