Hickok45 takes a look at the Rock Island Armory Tactical 1911 made by Arms Corps. in the Philippines.
This particular handgun was donated by The Gun Parlor in Worchester, Massachusetts. It’s a 1911 with a low-end price tag and a great big “Rock Island” advertisement along the slide. Most of the parts are mold injected, which is a deal-breaker for many 1911 purists, but it’s hard to beat an MSRP below $400.
The RIA 1911 is available in .45 ACP, 10mm, and 9mm. The pistol in this video is one of the 9mm tactical models.
Is this imported 1911 a true bargain or a big bust? Hickok45 answers the question viewers everywhere have been asking.
