You killed my bank account! You bastard!

Ok, not really, but it sounded good. The thought of a custom 1911 just kept sitting at the back of my head and after checking out the local sporting goods store and seeing that they had a sale on the Rock Island 1911-A1 at $309 I couldn’t take it.

I bought the damn thing.

Here are some pictures. I haven’t even field stripped it yet and the tags are still hanging on it, but I wanted a good photo record because sometime in the future I hope to have this puppy tricked out.

I won’t get a chance to shoot it until the end of the month and then I plan on running several different loads through it to see how it eats. My big 3 are Accuracy, Reliability, and Accessibility. I want to get a feel for how well it shoots, how well it feeds ammo, and how easy it is to use. I’ll start making changes from there, but I can tell you now those grips gotta go. They are just fugly!
