    I stripped down my Rock today and looked around to see the different wear marks or lack there are in some areas. Since I do not completely know this platform like I do others I want to share my pictures. If you see something say something. This has about 500 rounds through it, not many due to...

    Like the thread title says, I'm asking if anyone has ever seen either of these pistols for sale anywhere? American Handgunner reviewed the Remington some time ago, and I contacted the Editor to ask him where I could find one as they were nowhere to be found. As for the Rock Island, you name...

    I posted this on Facebook (of all places) and wonder what type of comments people come back with, given that some of my family members are slightly liberal. <disclaimer> Firearms topic (yet again), since we have a gun show this coming weekend... </disclaimer> Look at this beautiful photo...

    New to the group. I've been a glock owner for quite awhile but now I am looking to get my first 1911 and I am on a budget. This is going to be nothing more than a range gun and an intro into the platform. I was looking at the RIA tac ultra and the Kimber Custom LW. I have heard Kimbers have...

    I saw this pistol in a pawn shop and while it looks a little rough, I figure I can refinish the grips, clean it good and it may make a good carry piece. They want 350.00 and they take trades so I was gonna see if the want my Bulgarian Mak with about 500 rounds of ammo, and see what I can work...

    I'm new to 1911s but by no means new to firearms. I'm on the fence regarding my first 1911. I'm looking closely at the fusion reaction and the rock island 45 fs match. Both appear to be hand fitted and close to the same features. I'd like to hear comparisons if anyone has experience with either...

    A Guncrafter #2 it is not. A WC Supergrade it will never be. But this thing is a lot of fun, and really nice for the $ invested. I’ve had a 10mm itch for a while that wouldn’t go away, and got this for $675 brand new including shipping and transfer fees, so what the hell, right? I immediately...

    I have my eye on a Night Hawk or Ed Brown 10mm long slide. Need to get some funds available for it. I am selling my RIA M1911-A2 Tact 2011 long slide in 10MM. I've shot about 75 rounds through it. A mix of S&B and Sig brass cased ammo. No issues. It comes with all the original stuff. Box...

    I need a few more mags for my Rock Island. I have a couple of mec-gars with removable bottoms so thats what I am used to, but I don't like the plastic follower. I found some Chip McCormick Shooting Classic 8rd mags for less than $20 bucks. But they are fixed bottom. What are the pros/cons of...

    It feels like its been forever, though its only been a couple of months. But finally I've got my 1911 back from the Armscor/Rock Island gunsmiths, with my new TruGlo TFX sights installed and a reliability tune.

    Here you go... I made this late this afternoon of my RIA 1911 "Rock" series (# 51431) that has the custom USCG teak checkered grips. Hopefully the mods will allow a link to You Tube that I created. ;)
