Default ROCK ISLAND .45 1911 A2 HI CAP WIDE BODY

http://www.sarcoinc.com/rockislands-new.html

I'm seriously considering picking up one of these little darlin's at the bargin basement price of $399 plus $25 shipping and another $10 for FFL so I was wondering if anyone here had any experience or knowledge of this weapon you'd like to share. I've fingered em a bit in the local gun shop a time or two and I like her feel. Other than a more comfortable grip for a big hand guy, a little more weight what with the "14 ROUND MAG" (load once shoot twice a day for a week) it seems like just what Dr. Rick "needs", however I am concerned about the additional weight for conceled carry and any techno stuff.

So, who knows this weapon? ;D

Tks,

Rick

I have one of the single stacks.
Shot well out of the box, very well made firearm.

I didn't know they had a Hi-cap!
My wife is going to be PO'd when I get one of those.

Yeah, I've got a Springfield with a 4" tube and dearly love the 1911 platform but the 14 round mag is cool. I'm just wondering about the the carry and the techs such as is this a standard slide/bushing/springs etc.

Tks,

Rick

My son just bought a single stack. 100 rounds through it so far with nary a bobble. It was all hardball though. nothing fancy yet

I might look into this. I have big hands and like the loud noise .45 makes.
