Rock Island Armory GI 1911-A1


Yesterday at the gun show in Birmingham I picked up a RIA GI 1911-A1. I was on the look out for a commander sized 1911, but I wasn't willing to pay over a thousand dollars for a used pistol.

I cut a good deal with the man selling the gun and got it, spare mag, and an extra set of grips. I may have overpaid a bit, but considering the prices at the show and that I've seen around town I'm happy with what I paid, even if it doesn't match up to a lot of the prices I've seen tossed around. I'm not complaining.

I did a little shooting with it today (more on that later) and I was able to shoot a 1" group with it without much effort. I'm going to put it through the paces a bit more some time in the following month.
