Two Affordable 1911s: Rock Island Armory Beats Firestorm
The RIA Tactical is an affordable performer. The Firestorm 45 has promise, but a simple flaw gave us enough trouble that we graded it down and wouldnt buy it. You might, however.
There are many renditions of the Government Model 1911 45. Some have every feature and improvement known to man. Others are more utilitarian. You pay your money and you take your choice. There is certainly a market for a workingman's 45 with good features above those of the GI pistol, but which remains affordable. After all, many top-quality 1911 pistols start around $1000. There are a number of good GI pistols for under $500, but few 1911s below $500 also feature good sights and other advanced features.
