    I have the opportunity to pick up a like new Rock River Basic Carry sight unseen and am looking for some feedback. I have never handled any of the RRA 1911's, but have read some very favorable reviews on them. I am just wondering if anyone has a Basic Carry, and if so, how do you like it? Quality of build? Comparison to the other Mfg.'s, ect. Brian seems to have a postive view of them, which is always a good sign. Any thoughts on what I should expect?

    Well, you have my feedback and I think most others will agree.

    RRAs rock :rock:





    I hope you get it. You need one in your fine collection. :)

    Nah....I don't have anywhere close to that kind of collection. I am not even sure I will keep the RRA. I figured the price was decent enough that I could get my money back if I decided it was not for me. I am not sure about a park'd pistol, but that is an easy enough fix down the road if I decide to keep it. It sure does look like a nice pistol from the photos I was sent.

    That's a really nice looking gun. Very clean lines.

    Beautiful gun Dave.

    I hope you keep it. I like the fact that it has no FCS. :)

    Yeah, I actually thought about changing my RRA to a solid trigger, as I like them better now than the 3-hole, especially the short model. However, I want to keep it bone stock, as it came from RRA.

    I know I could always change it back, but I just don't want to mess with this 1911 at all.

    I love it for what it is. :)

    And now you can own your own so you don't have to look at the pictures anymore.

    The Basic Carry does not really come close to that Limited Match, though....

    You have a point there but at least you would have an RRA.

    I don't remember the actually differences in features and, obviously, the website is no longer a help.

    My first semi-custom 1911 was an RRA basic carry. It did not have night sights. Other than that it was okay and the workmanship was good. They will still fix them under warranty as well, mine had to have a new front sight installed because it was shooting low. If it is a good deal I bet you could make some money on it.
