Well went to the Gun Show today and was looking for a springfield Armory WWII Repo well i found one a said dont think i want to pay that much so looked around some more ...


Saw 2 Rock Island 1911's and though i would see how much and maybe have a cheep basis for a build project myself ... Flipping though the prices i see the one is a 38 super and away it went with my.


My impressions so far is it close to a mil spec tiny little sights tiny little single sided safety and when ya shake it it rattles big time :biggrin:

Finsh is very even has the Parkerized Finish..Was really impressed and surprised by the manual it goes though total take down.

Now im not up on how the 38 supers are normaly done but it looks like this one has a heavy barrel and is fitted to a 45 slide ... Manual is even restamped 38 super by Armscor and the case shipped with gun is a 38 super made me wonder when i was looking at it.


Machining marks look about as much as my Springfield loaded so no a lot


Only Con so far was the single sided safety and worried about hammer bite but well see and only came with 1 mag a mec-gar which ive had good luck with before cant wait ti shoot it ... Trying to decide to go pick my Smith weson 1911sc tomm or wait a day or so :3some:

ok as promised again not the best pics i cant find my digtal SLR must still be at mom and pops.

Also what do ya think of the grip selections the lighter brown ones look better for RIA or on my springer loaded .... I think the other ones Black cheery i think they are will look good on the SC ... but i also would like to hear your opinions.. :afro:


Just fitted the Arched mag well to springer last night cant wait to try it out guess i wont be carrying it anymore
