Rock Island has been getting slot of love for the money.

Sorry for your loss, I know what it is like to have something stolen from you......dont give up hope, it may turn up. I found a stolen motorcycle of mine almost 2 years after its theft.

Rock island or Springer gi would be a good replacement

Springfield GI isn't as easy to find as it was a few months ago. The mil spec is very nice though. The RIA I think is supposedly built on old Colt equipment using their original specs.

-md1911-
The Rock Island is cheap&OK for a first time 1911 owner but for a Colt 1911 owner to go to the Rock Island this is Not a Good thing...Before you buy the Rock Island Fire it first and feel the difference......
