    This was my 9mm RIA, I traded it off last month for a 1909 Springfield in 30/40 Krag. Last week I bought a Taurus PT1911 in 9mm, but haven't fired it yet.

    I've had a 9mm Tactical for almost a year with about 1,000 rds thru it- NEVER a problem!
    A few changes outside but internals are 100% factory-

    I sold them in my shop but I never owned a rock island until now and I will tell you, this one is a nice gun for the money!

    Personally, I prefer 1911s made in the U.S.- not ersatz "Springfields" or "Rock Islands" made overseas. If they are so good, why do they mooch on respected, old U.S. names? I have a Colt and a Kimber.

    I have several US made 1911s as well, but, nothing wrong with these.
