Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

Has a lot of features for its modest price: Light rail, good barrel fitting, a set of TruDot night sights, a quality beavertail safety, and an ambidextrous slide-lock safety. Reliability and accuracy were very good. Exhibited the best trigger pull of the group.

The Rock Island Tactical offers the best performance of any Rock Island pistol we have tested.
Because of the length of the bottom of the slide, the Rock Island rail gun will not fit a railgun holster made for standard Colt and Springfield rail guns.
The pistol's monolithic steel frame design differs from previous Armscor models. That slab-sided steel frame and slide covering a 5-inch barrel makes the Rock Island Armory a range gun or a house gun. The Picatinny rail is nicely integrated into the whole front end when the slide is closed.
