    Take the empty mag out before you try releasing the slide you are fighting the magazine spring

    Yes, and I'm one of them. $200.00 1911? I didn't know there was such a critter.

    200 bucks less. That explains it. Well, what do I know about 1911's anyway. Just left their site too. Need to pay more attention and not see what I want to see. :rolleyes:

    Follow up on the Rock Island Tactical, I dont know why anyone would hesitate to purchase one of these pistols. I took it out for a short test drive and I have to say I am impressed with its performance and accuracy. The grips are a little coarse and will scuff your hands a little but I guarantee it wont slip. The fiber optic front sight is a pleasure to look down and even with the factory mag I had zero issues. The factory recommends 500 break in rounds so I will be glad to break it in, but for those out there who wouldnt consider buying a Philippine 1911 I would just say to you thats ok, I will enjoy mine just as much as my american made ones.

    Yes it really is. Rock island has been around for a long time and they are now building some of their guns here in the U.S. I cant tell you which ones though.

    My Remington R1. I added a full-length guide rod as well as improving the recoil spring to 18lbs. Swapped the wood grips for some Hogue grips. Bought a couple of 8-round Kimber mags as well to compliment the 7-round ones that came with the gun.

    I've had this one for about 40 years!
    It's as sweet now as it was then.

    These 2 Colts get to travel. The old Commander .45 ACP and his little brother the Mustang Plus II .380 are carry guns.:)

    I like the looks of a gun that shows that it gets carried.

    I thought for a second that the Essex had a Bomar sight on it, but its not cut in, is that a Novak? I run a Bomar on this STI. Its a good sight after you dehorn it.

    Its a genuine Bomar style in a "standard" dovetail cut :eek:
    Forget brand- wouldn't recommend it anyway--You can see from pics it sits to high, for my taste & purpose anyway.
