    I purchased a Rock Island 1911 ,45 acp match. Upon receiving, I took it apart, inspected, cleaned, lub, installed Hogue wrap around grips and put it all back together.
    Went to the range today and was extremely impressed with its accuracy.
    I first test fired 20 rounds, five at a time, at 30 ft. I used a bright orange stick on 6 inch target with 3 inch inner circle bullseye. I used the one inch black square in the center of the target and aimed 6 O'Clock as point of aim. All 20 rounds were in the three inch inner circle. I ended up shooting 100 rounds of Stone Hart Premium 230 gr ammo and had no hangs or jams. The gun worked perfect. I even tried jamming the gun by shooting as fast as I could, but it worked perfect. Even when I shot at 25 yards all rounds were in the 6 inch target (timed fire). If I was still in my prime, I think all would have been in the 3 inch inner bullseye. The gun shoots that good. I took out my Colt Gold Cup National Match could not do any better. Very happy with my new 1911 RI Match.

    Good looking 1911! The grips definitely look comfortable. I like that skeletonized trigger also. Congrats

    Congrats on your new 1911, Armscor has proven itself to make some damn good 1911s.

    What did you pay? I found one at my LGS and went to put it on layaway and they just sold it on gunbroker. The one I saw had a stainless frame and blued slide. It was right around $550 I think.

    Ri match 911

    If you can find a Rock Island 1911 MATCH .45 ACP for $550, you should jump on it, for they have gotten very hard to find. I have seen them go for $725 on GunsAmerica. Back when I was looking, Gunbroker.com did not have any.
    I was lucky and paid much less for mine, $645.

    Maybe the one I saw was not the match then. I don't think it had those sights and that exact trigger but had a nice dove tail, skeletonized trigger and hammer.
