    Just looked at their catalog and they are offering a poly 1911. In the past they built some nice 1911's. Whats your opinion of a Polymer 1911 being of the same quality as the steel models ? Hope this isn't old news that's already been hashed out.

    I don't like the idea at all.

    I didn't like the idea of RRA getting out of the 1911 business to concentrate on plastic rifles either.

    I am interested to see how it turns out though. While I don't like the idea of them dropping the 1911's in favor of the AR's, I commend them for doing so, as to not let the quality possibly take a hit. My RRA AR is outstanding! And I LOVE my RRA 1911. Especially now, after a trip to Metaloy. :cool:

    I wouldn't mind picking up that HC Limited Match on Gunbroker, actually.

    Its a tad high though. :sad:

    You pay for what you get. The new plastic M1911 isn't going to be of the same high quality as their previous M1911 offerings...of course the new plastic ones aren't nearly as expensive either.
     
  6. I don't see the point in making a polymer 1911.
    Will it have a metal feed ramp molded into the plastic frame?
    Will the thumb safety, slide stop, grip safety be plastic with a metal insert moded in?
    I just don't see the attraction in a plastic 1911.
    Nothing wrong with a plastic gun but not in a 1911.

    I really don't understand what the big fuss is about. If you don't like a poly framed 1911, then don't buy one. No different than if you don't like 1911's with rails, or aluminum frames, or with short barrels, or without bushings, or...etc. :faint:Rock River makes quality products. I doubt they are going to turn out a junker. It's a fullsize 1911 that will carry easier due to the weight. The weight is the main reason that I carry a Glock over a 1911 most of the time. Hell, maybe the new RRA will get people to start carrying 1911's more often. :dunno:

    All good points, Joe.

    I just wish they would have started back their standard 1911 line instead. I'm sure you can agree.
