    Hello everyone,
    I'm in the process of acquiring my first 1911 type pistol (Rock Island Armory Compact Tactical 9mm 1911) and I was hoping to get some of your thoughts on this pistol from those who have one or have had one. Thanks.

    I have the 45 ACP version and absolutely love it. For that gun, Chip McCormick mags work very well. I hope the 9mm version works just as well for you.

    I've always been interested in one of these. However, they are very hard to come by around here in the 9mm. I have a buddy that just picked up the .45 compact tactical RIA, and that thing is great.

    i am absolutely wanting a 9mm in a 1911 platform. haven't done it yet as I don't really want or need or can justify one (translated: wife wants the bathroom remodeled). keep us posted, with pics. No pics, no joy!

    Armscor makes a solid 1911.

    After buying two RIA 1911, 10mm and 22 TCM/9mm, I am sold on them. Very solid for a low priced 1911 and their customer service is excellent.

    Buy with confidence!
