    Armscor makes 1911s for Rock Island....and I haven't heard much in the way of complaints from anyone who owns one. My RI 1911, while a little on the heavy side, has been a solid performer...

    I've been looking at that very same pistol for a while and after a good bit of research, I'm pretty sure that I'll be getting one to add to my assortment of 1911's. They're forged and appear to be well made and a great value, what more can you ask for?

    It's a .45.

    It has good sights.

    ARMSCO/Rock Island guns have a reputation for reliability.

    It's cheaper than other, prettier 1911 styles.

    It's a .45.

    I would buy it if the fit and finish were OK and the price was within a reasonable range.

    I read nothing but good things so far. Only the weight, as you said.
    Thanks for your reply.

    I have a RI full sized 10mm.
    Only complaints I had were easy fixes... I didn't like the grips or flat MSH that came on it, so I swapped them (personal preference)

    The other is the fact that, for some unknown reason, they told me it came with an 18# recoil spring, which, IMO, is too light for full house 10mm ammo. (Again, personal preference)

    Their FLGR set up required a commander length 22 or 24#, (I forget which, I THINK 22#) a Gov't model spring wouldn't fit.

    Mine's been accurate and reliable, and I have no qualms recommending them. They're not as "pretty" as some of the other brands out there, finish wise, but they WORK

    ……………………………………………..

    I'll try those grips, but will change them if I don't like them. It has a light trigger pull about 5.5 lbs, which I like.

    Thanks for your input.

    I don’t own a Philippines made 1911 yet but I have heard nothing but great things about them and the examples I’ve shot have been excellent, specially considering the price point.  I think they had some QC issues years ago but they have more than made up for them.  I’d buy that gun in a minute.

    Welcome!

    I read about 30 years ago they move to the states (Colorado) near my ex-wife lol. The price range I got was from a high $700 to a low of $ 475. 
    Thanks for your reply and welcome.

    Yes, I liked the sights too, with two different colors (great idea) I can live with the reast.

    I have a 10mm similar to Pauls.  I don't have the large lettering on the side, just a small logo at the rear of the slide.  I like those grips myself.  Gives good purchase.  Mine has been very reliable with nothing but reloads shot in it.  Not as accurate as my ruger .45 but that could be me cause well, 10mm.  Welcome aboard.

    I don't have that model, but I have an RIA Officer's sized pistol that shoots very well indeed. The middle target is 15 yards standing unsupported one 7 round mag. The bottom target is 15 yards rested, one 7 round mag. The top target is 9mm so disregard. 

    Edited... The groups were 7 round magazines...but 5 round groups.

    Yea, I know. The funny thing is, the shots that hit the bull weren't the first shots, but later in the string.

    I was an unrepentant gun snob for years.  All my 1911s had to be Colt or Springfield Armory.  A friend picked up a used Rock Island GI for $250 off an ad.  It ran like a freight train with nothing done to it.  He used it in USPSA Single Stack for a whole summer before I put on a beavertail, new sights, trigger, and did a trigger job on it.  then he ran it for another year.  As I recall, the only failures it ever had were 3 or 4 ammo-related ones over a long series of matches.

    Since then, I have purchased a 9mm RIA 5" and a 45ACP RIA 5" and built them for carry/match use.  They really are great pistols.  I can't see you not being well served with the one you bought.

    My friend purchased one of the 10mm pistols as a field gun when hunting.  He had "decent" accuracy, then he simply had me fit a tighter Wilson bushing and it went from a 6" at 25 yard pistol to a 3.5" at 25 yard pistol.  It was a $30 fix and decreased group size by 40%.
