Rock Island Tactical in .40 S&W ????




Recieved a Armscor catalog, they show a 5" Tactical, 1911, bushing gun in .40 S&W.
Anyone have one?

If it's an actual "Armscor" branded pistol, those aren't available in the US. Don't know of any .40 RIA's, even though they're made by Armscor.

Armscor makes good stuff, but IMO they could stand to broaden their RIA and High Standard product line considerably, and import the Armscor brand here. Offer us 9mm and .40 S&W in all full-size styles, as well as .45. Offer the Midsize in a Tactical version, in all 3 calibers. Offer a CCO version, with a Midsize slide on a Compact frame, in all 3 calibers.

They'd sell like hotcakes.

C'mon Ivan and Ray, tell the big dogs what we want!

Thanks for the replies.
Rondawg, Got Armscor's newest Nevada Gun Works catalog here in front of me, it shows the RIA Tactical, 5", 1911 available in .45 ACP, .40 S&W, and .9mm. They also have the Target 1911 with what looks like a 6" barrel and high cap. frame, also in .45 ACP, .40 S&W, and .9mm.
The 1911A1-CS, (compact frame), is offered in .45 only.

I've got a message sent about the Tactical in .40 S&W to Ray W. of Armscor at a different 1911 forum, haven't heard back yet. Also asked about the rumored Armscor Nevada Gun Works "custom" shop.

Old-Lefty, What kind of 25 yard accuracy do you get from your .40 bushing gun?

I asked Ray the same .40 S&W question when I got my catalog. His reply:

"No plans on the 40. We had samples of the 9mm at SHOT show but haven't seen or heard anything yet. I'll post on the forums as soon as I hear something."

Just got a e-mail from Ray, told me the same as Blackmore, "no plans". Rats!!!!....A .40 Tactical would be perfect for getting into the IPSC single stack class without a huge investment.
