Purchased New Rock Island Tactical




Managed to snag a new Rock Island Tactical today for a decent price. This will be my first 1911 to have owned or shot.

I was up and down on which manufacturer I was going to buy from but decided RIA would accomplish everything I need from a 1911 (range, plinking and home defense) within a very reasonable price.

Needless to say I'm very excited to shoot it!

Pictures to be posted after a trip to the range next week.

Happy shooting,

Deuces

I had a hard time ruling out a RIA for myself before I bought my Springfield. There was a nice matte stainless tactical at the shop here and the only problem I could find with it was that the safety was a bit "mushy". Other than that, it seemed to be a very well put-together gun.

Hope you enjoy it!

I have a Citadel compact member of the Armscor family and I really like it. I am already planning on getting another compact in the brushed nickel finish to keep its' blued stablemate company.
Enjoy shooting your new pistol.

Smile often and shoot straight.

Congrats on the RIAs! Deusces and Fastbird!

Love my Tac 9! Great shooter and a real tack driver.

Thinking about a .45 in Commander size now.

Enjoy, and let's hear the range reports and see the pics!
