I love my Rock Island 1911, Mine is the matched version. I shoot it a lot more than my Colt Gold Cup. No FTF. I have put about 700 rds through it. Very accurate gun.

Does anyone know of any sites here they have parts to modify it with?

Parts to modify? It's a 1911, there are literally thousands of parts you can use. I changed the grips on mine, then went with stainless grip screws. Then put a Kimber beveled mag well and checkered mainspring housing on it.

Brownell's and MidwayUSA would be my go to sources for 1911 parts and accessories. most any of the Mil-Spect 1911 parts should work, but like any 1911, may need some fitting or tuning to make them work.

They are not a high end 1911...But you are not paying for one. I'd hasve no problem buying one at what they bring these days.
