Re: rock river arms 1911 or similar 'budget' 1911's
Rock RIVER or Rock ISLAND? I thought RRA stopped making the 1911 pistol over a year ago? I saw a thread over on M1911.org where a couple (1 or 2) people were having customer service issues, but this was when the AR15 rush was on.
if it's RRA and in good condition, for $300 I'd buy it in a heart beat.
RIA is a different story; there actually manufactured in the Philippines by Armscor, and most of the parts are Cast, not machined steel. most people that own them love them for what they are, but some hate them with a passion, I think this may be Kimber crowd, lol.
but like you said "budget" so even if it isn't a RIA, you might want to consider them.
