I had one I played with for a bit. Not a bad pistol. Felt like a 1911 for sure. I've heard if you polish the internals its an awesome pistol for the price. If I was going to get a Rock Island however I'd look into something a little cheaper. I mean 450.00 isn't bad for a new one but you could probably easily find a better deal than that used.
