I've actually not handled guns by either Rock Island or Tisas, but people I know who have say that the Tisas guns are just a bit nicer overall. Not a huge difference.

Owning both I'd say the difference, while not huge, is certainly noticeable.
If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.

I’ve only owned 1 RIA 1911 and that was in 10MM.  From what I remember of it, the Tisas seems to be just a bit nicer in fit, finish and machining

The Battleship Texas Foundation has this commemorative Colt Python for sale with engraving.  Shiny stainless looks good in a package like this.  Shoots good also.   =)



Don't like Colt revolvers, but that would look so much better with a blued finish, even I would want it. Using stainless for a gun like that is just dumb.
I do not own a boat. I still have all my guns, cuz this is America.

Just ran a few rounds thru my 5” Duty received earlier this week.

75 rounds of 230 gr FMJ over HP-38
16 rounds of 230 gr Zero JHP over HP-38
16 rounds of Federal 230 gr JHP Hi-Shock
16 rounds of 230 gr Gold Dot JHP

Had 2 FTF on the Zero JHP and it was the 2nd round on the same magazine. Marked that mag and put to the side. Everything else ran just fine with the 2nd factory magazine and a Wilson 47D.

Groups we’re great at 15 yds and opened up just a bit due to rapid fire trying to see if it would fail to feed, which it didn’t after the magazine was set to the side.

Nice.  Good to hear is feeds HP ammo decently.
