A Solid Performer. If your a fan of the 1911, then here is a handgun rarely touted in the press, but has a solid reputation for being one of the most affordable, reliable and well made working 1911 pistols on the market. But don’t let the price fool you into thinking it's cheaply made. Affectionately referred to as “The Rock” among owners, this Rock Island Armory Tactical 1911 Full Size is made from forged 4120 steel with a 5" hammer forged barrel. In addition, each Rock Island 1911 is backed by a lifetime warranty. It is made in the Philippines, but actually may be even more loyal to the original 1911 template than most anything currently made here in the USA. The Filipinos have long been close allies of the U.S., and have a respectable handgun heritage. Many a WWII Japanese soldier’s last sight on this earth was a Filipino Guerilla aiming a 1911 at him.

The Rock Island Armory 1911 Tactical Rail is built around the original 1911A1 format, often referred to as a Series '70 firing system. Many 1911 purists will be pleased to know that the Tactical does contain either a firing pin or hammer drop safety adapted from the Series '80 firing system. While the thumb safety is ambidextrous with wide paddles, the grip safety is an upswept, high ride beavertail configuration. In addition, the hammer is a skeletonized, low mass design. The gun features combat style, low profile, snag- free sights and when properly lined up, are deadly precise. This is a close range pistol, a gun designed for trench fighting, or for clearing bad guys from your house in the middle of the night. That is the job that the working 1911 was built to do. And even if you can’t actually track the iron sights in low light, then the ergonomic design of the 1911 still lends itself to natural body position aiming. Suffice it to say, this 1911 really delivers.

This Rock Island Armory Tactical 1911 Full Size has a full length dust cover with integral Picatinny rail to even the weight and help reduce recoil. It also includes a durable Parkerized finish. All locking lugs, as well as the barrel bushing, fit together properly and the gun shoots surprisingly well. A minimum of tool marks can be found anywhere on this pistol, and the controls work nicely with a positive degree of crispness. When working the slide, the link feels solid and the locking lugs roll right into place. There is a full guide rod with a curved skeletonized trigger. The grips are an attractive slab of dense wood, nicer than anything found on most original U.S. G.I. 1911s. The magazine also exhibits quality construction, and is an eight round unit.
