Rock Island Armory 1911 45 ACP Tactical FS

Postby GoesBang » Wed Dec 16, 2015 12:05 am

Finally picked up my RIA 1911 45 ACP Tactical FS. Maiden voyage is Thursday.

Cycles fine with dummy rounds. Ejects great.

I need a barrel bushing wrench (got one ordered).

The rear sight dots need a little bit of color.

I know that I will love it. Haven't shot a 1911 since 1977 while I was in USMC boot camp. Wanted one ever since.

Pics will come. I'm waiting for the rear sight dots to dry.

I bought a Fobus holster (wicked retention) for it last week in anticipation. That and a double mag pouch for single stack mags.

Need to start buying mags too!

Congrats on your new 1911. Every shooter should own one. Let us know how you like it after having the chance to put a few rounds down range.

I also carried a few M1911A1s during my military days. Guess it shows our age since the M9 has been the military pistol for a lot of years now.

I have a Colt M1911 from 1918 and a newer Remington R1. I don't shoot the old Colt but I enjoy the heck out of the R1.

Since I did not have a barrel bushing tool I could not strip it down to clean it.. I decided to rack the slide numerous times instead. It was oozing oil a little and I decided to shoot it as is.

Flawless out of the box for about 50 rounds. It was pretty cold out, there were some idiots on the range next to us, and we had other guns to shoot as well.

Hey GoesBang, awesome looking 1911 you bought there! RIA makes some tasty stuff for sure. You and I were kinda doing the same thing in the Corps...I was in from 83'-87'. Camp Pendleton was my "home base" as well...spent 7 months on Okinawa...MAG-39 on Pendleton & MAG-36 on "The Rock". Semper Fi! :D

I was in HML-267 at CamPen. I was also born in Okinawa. My father is retired USN.

Alex C posted a video of field stripping a 1911 on http://www.thefirearmblog.com/blog/2015 ... eld-strip/ where he simply depressed the recoil spring plug, and rotated the barrel bushing by hand. Might not be that easy on a brand new pistol, though.

Those look like a pretty good deal. I was actually considering one of their 9mm/22TCM 1911s before I got my Glock 17, but by the time I was ready to spend the money, they were on back order. I'm planning on picking up a 1911 early next year, and RIA is high on the list.

I'm second on the list, after the owner, at the LGS for a Glock 17 22TCM9R conversion. Apparently they were supposed to come out last May, I've been reading about them for a while but haven't seen any in the wild.
