Rock Island Armory 22 TCM Micromag 1911 Pistol




What do you think about this video?

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. 

Romeo Bobadilla: For me its a 223 short

Romeo Bobadilla: How about a 20000 round test firing

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: Nice videos

tristan talves: Nice review 

Stuart Thompson: what is the use for the 22 TCM round ?

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

Alexander Medina: love all ur vids

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.

Argelio Del llano: Not a 1911

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.

Badeye Bill: I'm confused on mine you have to change out the Extractor?? for extra Mags and ammo you can get them @advancedtactical.com/.mine is much better as a 9MM.

Irdu Lili: Neat story about Rock Island armory: Allegedly it was originally a Colt manufacturing facility that was abandoned in WWII when the Japanese invaded the Philippines. Flash forward to modern day, Armscor acquires the facility and starts turning out these awesome budget priced 1911s. Mind you, I've heard this 2nd hand, so someone jump in if I'm wrong, but it's a neat story.

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

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. 

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

Omegaclass: love the all metal design. seems like a nice gun to own. has anyone ever used the baby desert eagle? it all metal as well.

batang08: How much is it?

gymowner123: It's a necked down 223, not 9mm, the mags take either. The gun is accurate but shoots a fireball, and is blinding, we will see how it sells

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

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

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

Hugh Stewart: Really interesting calibre going to find out more about it now. Great idea having the 9mm combo! 

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

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.

Charles Washington: Need one now . Great weapon .

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.

Jason S: good! Thanks.

memback01: 40 mm projectile?

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

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..

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.

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

Patricia Bartunek: want one for my birthday :)

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.

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!

James Amescua: Looks like a well build 1911. 

David J Browning: This calibre blew my mind! I just got off the phone with my local gun dealer and I have one ordered right now;)...

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.

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. 

Mathew Peek: Actually the tcm is a necked down 223. Check out the website. But great videos man.

biteme: Lol 40 mm

Saku19: It's like .223Rem in your hand.

Butch Blaquera: made in the Philippines but they sell it here double the price. 

Oleg Kuraev: GOOOOOOOD!!!!

MyK6Gixxer: Great video but just wanted to add my $.02! The combo 22TCM/9mm comes with a 7lb/12lb spring along with both barrels and an additional extractor. The extractor needs to be changed when swapping over to 9mm. I have talked to several reliable sources and all have informed me that ARMSCOR/Rock island will be discontinuing the 22 TCM/9mm combo due to many issues of people not swapping/forgetting to change springs, etc.... They will continue to make the 22 TCM but are going to stop the combo A2's stateside, so scoop one up if you run across one. I bought 2 and absolutely love them! Been a lot of fun load developing and if anyone has heard different please chime in! Stay safe and happy shooting!

Hans S.: My RI 1911 A1 has been an amazing pistol. It has around 15,000 round through it and it's running better than ever. Add a Pachmyer grip, and your set for less than $450. Can't beat it.

Shrimps: Thanks man, I appreciate the feedback. The reason I was able to get sales is because I offer rare shrimps for sale. Not many other online place is willing to take the risk at shipping high priced shrimps. That is my way of earning online.
