Rock Islands are a decent entry level 1911. Can't say I've ever read any complaints about them on any of the 1911 forums I'm on. Quite the opposite actually, usually recommended for those just getting into them and not ready to drop a few grand.

Sounds like a good trade to me.

Might be trading my iPad 2 for a 1911 in 9mm, it's made by RIA, anyone know anything about it? Good? Bad?


my friend just got an RIA officers 1911 in .45 and it shoots amazing. but you can buy a new one for less than 400 bucks i dont know what the ipad is worth so i cant say if its a good trade or not.

Change of plans. I just sold the iPad today for $300 and I'm taking another $150 and putting it towards a RIA 1911 .45 with upgraded beavertail hammer and trigger.

I don't like the Mossberg 500 too much after shooting it today :/
Safety is super loose, something I have to fix already. It's a beautiful gun and it serves its purpose, but I feel like the money could have been spent better on something else. :mad2:

Oh well, just something else to chalk up as a life lesson.

Best perk is being able to walk out with a handgun the same day.

Found out the TA31ECOS wasn't in stock after I ordered it. :rolleyes:
Ended up ordering a TA31RCO-M150CP-G along with a Larue mount and so far I'm loving it.

The safety is a super easy fix. Strip the gun down and it's a single screw inside the receiver you need to tighten. Throw some blue loc-tite on it for good measure.

Well the safety is fixed on the Mossberg, but I still think I'm gonna try to sell it sometime soon. Beautiful gun, but not sure if it's for me.

I decided on a 442 or 642 (whatever I can find first). I called 3 different local shops looking for one without an internal lock. The first said they can't get one anytime soon, the second asked if it just came out, and the third said they didn't exsist without the lock.


Get a model 60, you cant go wrong.

If I wasn't building an AR Pistol I'd drive over tonight and buy one. Picking up my lowers on the 14th.
