    New Rock Island "Officer's" model

    Hey folks; long time since last post but I have been reading. Just wanted to bragg on my wonderful wife. She gave me a Rock Island M1911A1 "Officers" .45ACP for Christmas and I love it. Took it to the range last Friday ran 100 rounds through it without the first hic-up. patterns a little low and left at 10yds, but I think that was more the nut behind the trigger than the weapon. I'll post pic's and more range reports as I get more time on the firing line.

    They are a great bargin for the money, good quality, reliable. I switched to using 185 gr JHP in mine as it shoot a little low also, this eliminated that problem.

    Congrats, hang on to that gal...shes a keeper

    Sounds like a keeper to me, both the gun and the wife.

    Low and down left, sounds like little bit of a tough trigger, causing you to pull it somewhat. Had this problem on another .45 I owned. Make sure it's unloaded and try to aim at something and keep on target as you dry-fire it. If it flinches down & to the left, you know what's causing it. Just keep dry-firing and trying to keep it steady.

    Got yourself a keeper! Mrs. BigJon got me a 6 inch stainless GP100. We got some good women! I am very interested in the gun you got, or similar, as I am looking to change the caliber I currently carry. I carry an LC9 90% of the time. I like it, and thinness is a major factor. Have yet to hear something (too) bad about a 1911. Really looking forward to your range report! What are the dimensions, roughly,(?) lest you have some calipers handy. My main concern is how it handles ammunition, recoil, muzzle flip and anything else you feel is pertinent. The brand is a major factor. I have heard nothing but great things from my lgs, quality and customer service alike. As much detail as you can provide would be greatly appreciated!

    (Hope you) Enjoy!
    BigJon

    Picked up a very slightly used R.I.A. compact tactical model yesterday. Came with original mag plus 3 Chip McCormick mags and a nice leather holster. $400

    If my wife had done that, she would have a better chance of not being an Ex. LOL.

    hint: low / left typically means jerking the trigger.

    I checked out the RIA Officer's model as well.

    Some people might say that the officer's grip is too short for them but the Rock felt really good.

    By all accounts they are very reliable for a short 45 and I could see myself owning one if I can't
    afford that Dan Wesson CCO or real deal Officer's Model or even the Agent later this year.
