    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.
