    It works but it's not the quality I'm used to. It feels thin and cheap.

    ACT MAgs are made in Italy and they supply SIG in Europe. I run them in all my 1911's and they are great magazines...just my 2 cents:confused:

    That's fine. Like I said it does work but I don't like it. I keep expecting it to split apart every time I load it and you can't take the bumper off of it either. Well you can take it off but you have to put it back on to use it.:mad:

    Hey Hawg, I know a really nice fellow who owns an RIA that will still fire a round with the manual safety on. He just pulls the trigger firmly and watch's the safety move and hammer fall. And this guy agrees with H-D and puts Pachmyars on every 1911 and Hi Power he owns! Congrats Hawg on your new toy, enjoy!

    Hmmm...I gotcha. I can assure you, from my experience that they won't fall apart. I need the bumpers and I like the ones on the ACT's because they are smaller than most. I use them in my carry and my full sized guns:

    Hey guys,
    Just joined, anyway I wanted a "knock around gun" for hiking, hunting, general truck gun. Did a lot of reading and bought a Rock FS tac. Love it! She is not as pretty as my other guns but it shoots just as good. I have no issues with fit or finish. It eats what ever I put in it. The only thing I would change is the sights. Not bad, I just prefer a three dot sight. They are a little hard to see in low light.

    I bought four Chip McCormick's to try out. These are nice mags. I will be getting more of them.

    Welcome to the forum, Ryan. You have come to a great place, fun to browse around and full of excellent advice freely given, good disussions and a some good laughs.

    Sounds like you have a good gun there. Others will comment on it too, I'm sure.

    I have a 9mm that looks exactly like your pistol. Decent finish and that nice Philippine wood. Mine is astonishly accurate. The only downside I have experienced is that it does not like hollow point ammo.
