ARMSCOR Rock Island 1911 ?
Under 500 bucks. Parkerized finish. Nothing fancy. Been reading about them. Not pretty but reliable from what is read so far..

Any opinions on these ? Originally made in the the Phi.Islands and imported by ARMSCOR in Pahrump, NV..

ARMSCOR is the company in the PI that manufactures guns for Rock Island among others. Good solid entry level 1911s and RIA has great customer service should it be needed. At the $500 point, you should be getting a Tactical model with beavertail, dovetailed Novak sights, etc...

I've owned one and shot several. They are pretty nice. It's one of the better deals on an entry level 1911. AS said already at that money you're looking at the tactical model. A couple bells and whistles.

Great gun for the money. Accurate and reliable. I have 3 of them.

Here's the best deal, if you just want a GI 1911. They'll be back in stock real soon, and they will put orders down in the order that they take them.

I had the Tactical model. It was a POS. I'm sure it was just a lemon and not necessarily indicative of Rock Island's in general. However, I don't believe I would own another one because of the experience.

I have the GI and compact. Both have been reliable and worth the money.

I have the 5" Tactical, the 3.5" GI and the 5" Match and they are all very reliable and accurate. Evey gun company makes a few lemons.
