Some people say that " Rock Island is a good gun for the money" which is true BUT the its safe to say that they are just a damn good gun all together. I own a High Standard which is also made by Armscor, ive got almost 2k rounds through it with "zero" malfunctions and "zero" problems. Even some of the high end $1k+ 1911s cant say that. Best $500 that ive ever spuntwvcaver said:I shot mine for the first time a week ago put about two hundred rounds through it with our a single jam. Thank you I will stop by the introduction part. I'm more of a revolver guy tho I have owned many semi autos but I absolutly love the the 1911.
