Went Sat. am, several things I was looking for. Came home with this:

My first 1911. Rock Island Full-size Tactical in matte nickle. Was wanting the black duracoat version, but this is growing on me quickly. Everything seems real tight, and the fit and finish is way better than I expected. Looks like stainless, hope it holds up. The safety is a little chintzy, but that's the only negative so far. It will be a few days before I get to shoot it.
Got it from Collins Pawn. He was doing good business, had 4 applications back-to-back while I was there. Good prices = good sales. $513 OTD which is as good as you'll get on GB or anywhere else I've found. Picked up a couple of Wilson mags. Now the fun begins...

I think you'll be pleased with it, I own 2 Tacticals, and neither has given me the 1st problem. :thumbup:

Edit: I did trash the mag that came with one...was a cheapie.

S Fir Ave. in Collins. Talked some with the "helper" while paperwork was being processed. He said they have just started keeping some inventory out in the shop, most has stayed packed up for shows. I know I'll be calling them again when looking for something new.

The stock mag was a Mecgar, I thought they were shipping with ACT's but there were many complaints on 1911 Forum so perhaps they listened to their customers and changed.

My RIA tactical lives in my left hand desk drawer and wears a pair of CT Lasergrips:



So far, been one of the most reliable guns I've ever owned-at any price!
