    Just wanted to share my time with my new Rock Island 10mm 1911. I only shot 50 flawless rounds thru her this past weekend. The rounds where only 180 grain, but still packed a punch.

    I didn’t have any issues with the Rock, I just ran some lube on the rails and oil on the hammer. The trigger was a little bit gritty do to the lack of cleaning, but the reset is perfect for me. Very short.

    All shot were at 10 yds and off hand. Zero malfunctions. When I get more rounds down range Ill give an update. 0FF07384-D6D9-47A6-ADD6-9508F8B5D7CB.JPG 4A8C1EC3-270B-4740-BD81-0981BFD24CAF.JPG

    Nice grouping.
    Did the RIA come with the adjustable rear sight?

    I have a 1911 RIA and was very impressed by it the first time I shot with it. I’ve put several hundred rounds down range and the only issues I ever have had were when I had a weak-grip (limp-wristing) and had FTE/FTF at that point. Otherwise it’s been flawless and I’ve been incredibly impressed.

    Looks good! My RIA 10mm also had a little gritty trigger at first, but it got smooth after the first range session and some dry firing.
