    This is the case that i bought today, It's sweet, it has foam inserts, latches, and has it's own carry handle. I suggest everyone go and get themselves one of these Rock Island Arms cases.

    I failed to mention what came in the nice hardshell case... It's a Rock Island Arms M1911 A1, .45 ACP Pistol... Yeah, It followed me home! Oh wait, I don't have an old lady, I BOUGHT IT. Here's the pics, so don't get the Gunny after me!

    Yup you can be a member now. Just like mine before I changed out the grips for some very nice wood replacements. The grips were a gift and i don't remember where they came from but they make a big difference in how the gun looks and shoots.

  8. HPMAN,

    Which grip did you buy for it? Is there a model number.

    Strangerous,

    Good buy. I have one myself. I got mine for 395 NIB and you can't go wrong getting a mil-spec 1911 for that price!! Think of the possibilities!!

    I think he got the Houge with the finger grips, of which a set I gave to Primal. I like myPachmyrs better, for some strange reason.

    I got an update! I've put 2 mags through it without a hitch... Long story. :lol: Hopefully i will make it to the range sometime this week, because I didn't buy 200 rounds of .45 to look at, I promise.

    Can you get us a photo of the rear of the gun where the slide and frame come together? I would like to see how tight that is.... I am thinking about a RIA
