New Rock Island Tactical 45 review

Bought a new Tactical 45 5 inch Duracoat model this weekend and ran 150 rounds today; great shooter, extemely accurate. I ran Winchester 230 range and FMJ 230 range ammo; perfect.

It came with only 1 mag but I bought another ACT mag and a 10 round CMC mag.

I had 3 FTF issues with those mags but I'm thinking it's only a break-in issue.

This is my first 1911 45 and I'm very pleased; relatively soft shooter and deadly accurate.

I had my Glock smith disassemble it and educate me on cleaning, etc. He claims it shares many identical parts with a Kimber and/or Colt at half the price.

Glad you like it

Armscor makes solid 1911s for a great price.

Use Wilson mags. My buddy has two RIA 1911's and with Wilson mags they have been flawless with all kinds of ammo over the last eight years.

Your smithy is a genius!!!

M1911s share many parts with each other.

a friend of mine has 2 rock island 45's. he bought one a few yrs back it was flawless . the 2nd one he got a yr later had minor issues with feeding and ejecting. so he polished the feed ramp and bent the extractor a little and has no issues with it since.
