9mm 1911
 
1 Attachment(s)
Recently picked up a rock island R1 1911 in 9mm at the BX. wasn't sure about the quality, but only paid $380 for it. Seems to shoot fairly well but it does have a few flaws. GI sights, Dove tail safety is awful, needs trigger work, Titan firing pin, beefed up extractor, skel trigger/hammer and new grips. Really only good thing going for it is decent barrel an fairly good frame/slide fit. Looking for any info/ issues others have had???

As 9mm 1911's go they are not all that bad. Yeah they need as little TLC but really most 1911's do anyway unless you shell out some good money. RIA is a decent company. I've had a couple of the 45ACP 1911's. Look at some of the the companies making a 9mm 1911. Yeah they will not need as much mods as the RIA but the sticker is a good bit higher too. I've got a decent bit more in my Springer 9mm 1911. and still had to make some mods to get it where I wanted it.

Nice pick up. I'm sure you'll have a lot of fun with it.;)
