Rock Island 1911's have very smooth actions. I was so impressed when I found a couple. The 9 mm especially - but It's a little unfair to compare the 45 to the 9 since the 45 version has a stiffer spring to accommodate the stiffer 45 cartridge reaction --- vs the 9 mm having a softer spring.
Good reliability write-ups, too.
