    Rock island armory makes what appears to be a very nice 1911. I know Norinco is chinese manufactured. Is that true of RIA? I currently own both Colt and Springfield. Taurus, Charle Daly even S&W makes their own 1911 copies. Testament to the staying power of the greatest semi automatic handgun ever.

    Charles Daly (was) and RIA (is) made in the Phillipines. Some of Springfield Armory frames were made in South America by Embrel.
