    Well I pick this up on a whim for some thing fun to shoot, but the more I shot it the more I liked it I have had glocks since I was 21 and never thought I would prefer to carry this over them. All I have done to is is put a houge wrap around grip, and a kimber ambi saftey "left handed" it feels great and the thing runs I do not baby it by any means I drop my mags in the dirt pick them up fill them up and run it again it has yet to jam on me "have yet to run hollow points threw it" and it shoots better than I do all in all great tool don't understand why you would spend 800 and up for one of these when 475 works just fine

    Rock Island 1911A1 solid and fun

    Posted by Lynn C on Dec 26th 2010

    Bought a Rock Island 1911A1 as my first 1911. I was looking for a good, affordable entry level 1911. Looked at the Tarus and a couple of others. Bought the Rock Island for a couple of different reasons, first being that Impact had a killer deal on it as one of their 12 days of Christmas. The next is because of how it felt in my hands and how solid it felt. The finish is not high end by any means but it looks good. Took It out and shot it and it felt solid and is very accurate, maybe not match grade but then again I am not a completive shooter. It fills the bill for me and I would recommend this gun for anyone on a budget looking to by a 1911.
