Rock Island Armory 22 TCM Micromag 1911 Pistol




What do you think about this video?

oahu kane: Love the concept of what R.I.A. did. Field stripping a 1911 is no easy task and there are way better platforms

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

Johnny Boy: wow first time i saw this one cool

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.

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!

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..

memback01: 40 mm projectile?

Oleg Kuraev: GOOOOOOOD!!!!

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. 

Patricia Bartunek: want one for my birthday :)

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

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.

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

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.

EPOKRITO KUNO: made in philippines baby

TeenageReloader7.62: Actually a .22TCM is a necked down .223/5.56x45. If you hold a .22TCM and a 9mm together the .22TCM case is longer. This is for the reloaders out there.

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

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.

Ian Doskocil: I see it on tons of your 1911 bids.

TeenageReloader7.62: Dat grouping.

Ian Doskocil: what holster is that? +sootch00 

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!

rico blanco: just the right weapon for me!

TigerPunch7: I want...

Ed Canupp: BOOM!

WiNdBuRn1000: Dove tail for night sights correct?

Carl Spackler: Trying to coin a new term for a double stack magazine.? lol

Doom: oh god, I want a glock barrel and spring right now lol

chgofirefighter: Hi, nice video... This .22 Micromag looks promising, however, do you think this new caliber compares to the .22 Magnum, which only Kel Tec PMR manufactures a pistol and a carbine type pistol for for the ammo, besides North American Arms which make tiny revolvers for .22 magnum that I could think of. Anyway, nice video. RIA and ATI make decent 1911 version pistols. I have a Kimbers myself and I have encounter a few problems and for what I hear, RIA doesnt have nearly the prob that Kimbers have

ILPrepper: Great vid Sootch. I have to say that even though the .22 TCM round is entertaining and looking at the velocity - wow is the best word that comes to mind. However, the most impressive aspect of this 1911 is that it comes with a 9mm barrel. I know that a lot of companies are making 9mm for the 1911, however, they usually charge an arm and a leg. Needless to say, I would end up switching the barrel out and not looking back. Great vid and thanks for the info - I'll keep my eyes out for one!

Sin Verguenza: armscore 22 TCM is not made for the filipino market. at $650 definitely not a filipino friendly price... try the xt 22

AKJeeper: I've been pretty impressed with Rock Island Armory products. I bought my first RIA a couple years ago - it is their .45acp 1911 "tactical" model. Was very impressed with how tightly all the parts fit and even more impressed with how accurate it was. It definitely gives my Kimber 1911 a run for its money for accuracy. I sent my RIA 1911 to Nevada and had their gunsmith Arnel install Trijicon sights, as well as give my gun a match grade trigger job. I've had 100% reliability with my RIA 1911.

redmudpei: I'd like to see this round in a very short action, short barreled, bolt action.

Dan Red: I need help just like to know how it works FAMAS rifles as clean as I did not find anything on youtube. please help me

Gordon Yates: Now we need well established firearm manufacturers like CZ, Ruger, Glock, etc. to make .22 TCM barrels and recoil springs for their 9mm's.

Romeo Lupac: Very Neat presentation! Congratulations Sootch..

gemtech338: Very nice review

RichTF2: oh and the TCM being, for all intents and purposes, the same thing as a 5.7, is 50% cheaper per box of ammo.

coriant: It can use the same mags BUT getting extra mags is nearly impossible.

19hawk11: I think I'm starting to like the potential of this gun. First I love multi calibers, the penetration is excellent with the 22 and with the light spring my wife will be able to rack the slide,

LMO MechTech: Nice and factual as always! Been wanting to get one of these myself as the dual shootability is the way to go! Thanks for the input!

sootch00: Not yet but they are planning to offer dies soon. Thanks

tim dingler: I recently purchased this pistol,had a couple of problems during the first 50 rounds.Often it would not extract the fired shell and a few times the mag would not lock into place.Also it came with a 9mm extractor to be changed along with the barrel and spring.None of the video instructions say anything about changing the extractor.

hans fritz: sehr gut

Unmonitored Box: Too bad no one has any for sale

jwash3rd: Para mags don't work in mine with the .22 TCM but they're OK with 9mm. I'd stay with the Mec Gars that come with it. You should show the extractor swap- it's a little tricky at first.

Gerald .Abejar: TCM.... from ARMSCOR PHILIPPINES

he1lr1ser: .22tcm 5in barrel 2k fps Averages from the net, commonly available ammo .22lr rifle 1.5k fps .22lr pistol 1k fps .22mag rifle 2k fps .22mag pistol 1.5k fps .223/5.56 rifle 2.5-3k fps .223/5.56 pistol... 1.5-2k fps .22tcm rifle...??? I'd wager same as. 223/5.56, with tons less recoil.

Leland Webber: I have the Commander sized TCM. Nice gun, but a 9 MM barrel doesn't come with this shorter gun. It is fun to shoot, I have four 1911's in 45 ACP and one in 38 Super.

Jay Dobbins: I tried one of these today. LOVED it!!! very accurate, ZERO failures and lots of fun!!!
