Just another failed attempt to improve upon perfection

I don't remember who they were, but read where several other manufacturers have already tried their hand at a plastic 1911 & they didn't go over very well, so were discontinued. I don't figure Rock River will have any better luck.


P.S. I don't see the advantage since weight is about the same as an aluminum framed 1911.

Depending on the price, I'm thinking about getting one someday. I would prefer a smaller model, even possible a smaller caliber, in a 1911 style. Something like a commander at the very least, or a mustang or pocket lite in the more extreme.

Nope, it seems to be pretty close to the classic lines of a standard government 1911.

It's a bit lighter but... wider. Half an inch in circumference according to a gun rag i was reading. Some of that is in the grips though.
