Deal Details

Last Edited by krackels February 16, 2014 at 03:31 PM
This is the best price I've seen on a Rock Island Amory Tactical in .45 acp in a long while. My local shop had this model (but with wood stocks) for $500 + tax & fees. A quick google [google.com] search will give you retailers listing this gun for $450 - $520+ and more expensive shipping (and/or only at this price with a "cash discount").

Grabagun.com [grabagun.com] has this pistol listed at $409 + 5.95 shipping with no fees or special price for using a credit card.

These are very well made and very affordable guns. Here's a write up of the wood stocked RIA Tactical. http://www.m1911.org/ezine/RIATactical.htm

ETA:
It goes without saying that the gun can only be shipped to a FFL (Federal Firearms License) holder and cannot be shipped directly to the buyer without bypassing the FFL. Use your heads here folks that's a felony. Offer only valid in the United States. Please see Grabagun's Buying a Gun Guide [grabagun.com] first if you've never purchased a firearm online. Also check out their list of FFLs in your area [grabagun.com]. Dealers listed in blue have a FFL on file with Grabagun and won't need you to ask the FFL to fax a copy to them. When if doubt, contact the retailer. It's easier to work out any misunderstandings than it is waiting days and being frustrated because they haven't shipped it out because they don't have your dealer's FFL on file.

A quick explanation of the process for those that have never purchased a firearm online.
Some of these steps may vary by retailer (some may want to talk to you on the phone first prior to ordering or have a FFL on file first but it's all pretty much the same).
1. Find gun
2. Pay for gun
3. Contact online seller and inform them of the FFL that the firearm will be shipped to. If they don't have a FFL on file then they'll often ask you to ask the dealer to fax or email an original copy of their FFL to the seller.
4. Seller ships firearm to dealer
5. Dealer contacts you to let you know it has arrived.
6. Dealer performs NICS, Background check, and writes up any other paperwork as required by state, local, or federal laws.
7. When you have jumped through the hoops you walk out of the store with your new gun.

Please don't vote it down because you just don't "Like Guns".

I don't vote down deals on Ipods just because I don't like them. Please extend the same courtesy.

I hear great things about these guns. Almost bought one myself last month, and they are relatively inexpensive - I see them float around the $450 mark I believe.

Only reason I didn't pick one up, they're frames are cast vs forged. So I with SA (which is also double the cost pretty much!)

I voted down because Rock Island is a cheap mans 1911. No offense to owners, pay another $400, get yourself the real deal.

Does this have an external or internal extractor?

You obviously have never owned one.

It's a series 70 and has a standard internal extractor.

Not everyone needs a Ferarri or a Mercedes, some just need a Honda or a Ford. Certainly the fit and finish of a $800 or $1,000 production gun is going to be better than a $500 gun as you'd expect, but if you're looking for a reliable .45 1911 that goes bang every time and won't break the bank go for it.

Of course, I'd encourage everyone to research before you buy, but I've heard nothing but good things about RIA 1911s.

BTW, my first 1911 was a used Springfield Armory Mil-spec. Got it for a steal and sold it for a deal. :cry: I still miss it.

The cast vs. forged frame is only a really big deal if you don't have good quality control. I think it comes down to personal preference.

IIRC, Caspian frames are cast steel and many high end 1911 gun smiths uses Caspian frames to build their 1911s on. A lot of (not sure if all) Ruger frames are cast steel and they make some of the strongest frames in the market (ever wonder why that reload recipe said "Use only in Ruger revolvers"?).

I've got a 1911 that I'm building on a RIA frame, so I'll report back in 6 months how it held up. Wink

I have a Rock Tac in 9mm and it's been outstanding. Reliable, accurate, well made. A bargain at the price. Only thing I didn't like was the smooth wood grips, easily remedied with rubber diamonds/stainless screws off ebay. TU and repped for a good gun deal.

You do realize these are Identical to Colts. They are made on the same machines that used to make the Colt 1911s... or they used to be...

They also come with a lifetime warranty. I hear good things about RIA given the value. There are some reports of hiccups, but every manufacturer has them. My Sig 1911 wasn't smooth until I got it back from warranty repair.

Seems like a good deal, read a bit about this 1911 and seems rather favorable... considering people are more likely to crap on something rather than praise is a good sign.

If i had not just got the M&P 15-22 I would prob jump on this considering I have yet to pick up a side arm. Want to get a 1911 45 and a quality 9mm

thumbs up!

What is the real deal ? an overpriced colt? Look at all the reviews, an RIA is just as good. Some people think because it costs more its better. This is a great gun, no reason to pay more just to say you did.
