Rock Island Armory 22 TCM Micromag 1911 Pistol




What do you think about this video?

The Green Man: Great info on this 1911. I have been looking at a few dealers that carry this in my area and some of the user reviews state that you have to also change the extractor when you convert the barrel and spring to 9mm. Some say this is correct and others stated theirs only came with 1 extractor marked 22TCM and it works for both calibers. All said the pistol and caliber kicks ass.

Roe Shambeau: I recently found and bought this pistol used, for $349 with two mags and a free box of ammo sans the 9mm barrel but with both the recoils springs at my semi-local gun shop. This may be a quirk and Ive found no info on Google or Youtube about it but the recoil spring that was installed in the pistol when I purchased it was the 9mm one. I would have gone on shooting this thing without knowing untill one day, after about 60+ rounds I had ONE failure to eject. The round partially ejected and the slide bit down on the brass. At the time I didnt think anything of it untill it happened a week or so later. When I took it back the guy at the shop filled me in about the different springs and spring weights. When they bought the pistol on a trade-in the original owner hadnt even bothered to swap the springs out when they had in chambered for 9mm. You could tell by the wear and such that the 22 TCM spring hadnt even been touched. From what i understand, the reason the original owner traded it in is because of the fact he would have an occasional malfunction from not even bothering to swap the springs out. I am amazed that I presonally have put 200+ rounds through the pistol with only TWO failures on the 9MM spring. Just wow!

XXX: Ok I bought one, the Rock Island Armory 22 TCM. I shot 50 rounds of 22 TCM and 50 rounds of 9mm and had to take the pistol back to the dealer for a refund of my money. The 22 extractor broke a corner off and would not extract the round, had to use a screwdriver to get the last 22 round out of the barrel and the follower in the magazine locked the slide back before the last round in the magazine could chamber so it could fire. The follower did that with 22 and 9mm so it was a bad build job. The pistol performed badly from the first shot to the last of the 100 rounds I fired. It's not worth the cheap price I payed for it so don't waste your money....just saying. 

Hunter Wall: right around 1:05, I'd like to submit a correction: it's a necked-down and shortened .223 Remington, not 9x19mm.

John Blount: Thank you for the review. Earlier today I asked Mrgunsngear about a review of this handgun and he pointed me your way. It answered all of the questions I had about the weapon itself, the TCM cartridge, and how RIA worked the 9mm into the package. Subscribed.

Conrad Luznar: How about reviewing the Bersa BP380cc ?

RVM451: Do they offer a Single Column .22 TCM 1911A1s? …..RVM45

Billy Edmonson: The newer guns are being shipped with only one extractor. 

GILBERT MILLER: Ok I bought one, the Rock Island Armory 22 TCM. I shot 50 rounds of 22 TCM and 50 rounds of 9mm and had to take the pistol back to the dealer for a refund of my money. The 22 extractor broke a corner off and would not extract the round, had to use a screwdriver to get the last 22 round out of the barrel and the follower in the magazine locked the slide back before the last round in the magazine could chamber so it could fire. The follower did that with 22 and 9mm so it was a bad build job. The pistol performed badly from the first shot to the last of the 100 rounds I fired. It's not worth the cheap price I payed for it so don't waste your money....just saying. 

Romeo Bobadilla: How about an 20000 rounds firing,endurance test,put this gun in the water for 10 minutes,cover it by sand and test fired for 15 rounds,drop it for about 12 feet and fired for 15 rounds,glock,taurus,para ordinance tested for 10000 rounds firing,what do youthink ,it will pass the test,after those test we have to make a non destructive test for the whole parts of this gun,NDT.if this gun pass the test i think philippine government will be interested on this gun,remember berreta will fire 168000 rounds before the replacement of the barrel,for me everybody are looking for quality guns ,even it is cheap or expensive,anyway thanks sootch for your very cool videos your awesome.

Barry Winslow: Excellent vid........thanks

D Dun: It's not a neck down 9mm, 

Владимир Жириновский: Два калибра 

Просто Прохожий7: wow 2 in 1

Ben Graves: I love your videos, very informative, and not smug. I definitely like the .22 TCM concept, thank you for the review.

Kim Tate: Like your reviews and I love my 45cal Rock Island 1911... I hate to see these other people having problems. 

Jake bowen: I own one of these guns it broke the ejector after 119 rounds fired. When I contacted the company about it I was given the run around. Once I finally got someone that would talk to me they were rude and unhelpful. After I sent the gun in for repairs I was quoted 3 weeks turn around time. I still don't have the gun back over a month later. I always thought rock island was a decent company. But after this experience I would recommend thinking twice about purchasing a gun from them. Poor quality and terrible costumer service. 

TurboMitsubishi: Just to correct you, .22TCM it is not a necked down 9mm, it is it's own brass.

Romeo Bobadilla: How about a 20000 round test firing

Jake bowen: Follow up to my previous comment. Ivan at armscor listened to my problems with the 22tcm and took charge of it. He went above and beyond anything I could expect. He made is making it right. If he follows through as well as he has been so far I would recommend this company to anyone. 

Ian McPherson: the only problem ammo and the price, odd ammo = high $$$$.

joash480: Ever thought of putting a ligjt on yhat lije q crimson trace lightguard? Im curious to see what it looks or if even fits well.

Romeo Bobadilla: For me its a 223 short

Lawson11b: I've been watching all the .22 TCM videos I can... thinking about getting my first 1911. I'm left with one question - does the .22 TCM damage AR500 Steel? I shoot Speed Steel and I was hoping to be able to use both the 9mm and .22 TCM barrels ~Lawson11b

justin wiggins: Woah. Where's the blooper reel? 

michael demarco: looks like a para lower with the tang on the grips

Kikoman D Santos: I am buying one! TY for the review. Great presentation! 

Rich P: I am going to get one of these but none available I am told till the end of January. :( Late Christmas gift for me.

rwico: It's always great to hear you say...."Be strong. Be of good courage. God Bless America. Long live the Republic!" Rock Island Armory rocks!!!! Nice video. Thanks for sharing.

tristan talves: Nice review 

Alexander Medina: love all ur vids

Rey DeCastro: BTW. I love the "Smile and wait for the flash" comment.

Romeo Bobadilla: Nice videos

Argelio Del llano: Not a 1911

Jim Reed: I was able to have just a little milling on ejection port and was able to add a third barrel in 38 super and new spring. 

o2wow: The .22 TCM is based on the .223 Remington case, shortened so that the shoulder is at approximately the same length as the case mouth of a 9x19mm cartridge. The maximum overall loaded length is the same as a .45 ACP. The cartridge is designed to feed from a Para-Ordnance style double column .38 Super or 9x19mm magazine.[2] Currently only Rock Island Armory catalogs firearms chambered in .22 TCM: a 1911 style semi-auto pistol (also available with optional additional 9mm barrel and recoil spring), and a bolt action rifle (which reportedly can use the same magazines as the pistols); and only Armscor (the parent company of Rock Island Armory) manufactures ammunition.

Johnny Boy: wow first time i saw this one cool

Steve Jay: Nice Video on the RIA 22 TCM! I just order mine from cheaper than dirt, the combo deal with both barrels. I bought the last 1 in stock... got lucky cause they are hard to find.

batang08: How much is it?

Patricia Bartunek: want one for my birthday :)

Jason S: good! Thanks.

Rey DeCastro: Wow! This may be my alternative to the FN Five Seven.

biteme: Lol 40 mm

David Januszewski: Wow, a 22cal that out-performs the 9MM. Where the 9mm slug enters and stalls, the 22cal swirls and tumbles, yes a great advantage over the 9mm. There is a great future for this caliber..

mr.meaner: Man that guy has some hairy arms....

EPOKRITO KUNO: made in philippines baby

LMO MechTech: I came back to watch this again...great job, sootch00! I have had mine now since watching this the first time and luv' the way it shoots!! Great fun and a great gun to have fun with!

Goliathgauge88: I'm just nodding my head in agreement this whole vid. I'm a new FOID card holder in IL. I just put a down payment on a used Llama .32ACP. Now I know what my next auto loader will be. I didn't want to spend the big bucks until I was sure. Thanks . Good vid! This 1911 is very practical.

James Amescua: Looks like a well build 1911. 

3333glen: A guy at the range had one and I put a few rounds thru it. I liked it! Not only more more flash, but more muzzle blast. But, it seems that what we have is .22 WMR caliber, bullet, and velocity (thus .22 mag power) in a pistol. Nice, but not unusual. I think that comes out to about 200 ft.lbs muzzle energy, so like a .380 or soft .38 special. I wonder whether Tnoutdoors9 has done a ballistic gel test. Might be a good SD round. Oh, and he later explains that it needs its own brass, and not exactly a necked down 9 mm.
