June Lewis: I just bought this pistol. Armscor/Rock Island knows how to build a solid
1911 45 acp. I own Colts and Kimbers, but for me, it doesn't make sense to
spend thousands on a Colt or Kimber, when I can purchase an Armscor. Again,
this is just for me, at the end of the day, my pistols are for self defense
purposes, not target shooting. I started out with the Colt 1911 A1, as a
young United States Marine, fifty years ago. I saw the 1911 in combat in
Vietnam, so I know what a 45 slug will do to flesh. I have an Armscor 1911
45 acp, rail gun; that has nightsights. I have ran hundreds of rounds
through it, without a single hiccup. It is my bedside gun, along with my
Mossberg 12 gauge. My wife has a 9mm on her side of the bed. You presented
a very good review of this pistol, and I thank you!
Nathaniel Joves: Nice gun for ccw!
Chris Jamison: Thank god I just watched this video, I have had mine for about 4 weeks and
the paper clip thing was annoying as crap. Also, looks liked you polished
those grips up a little bit, looks good!! Bought Hogue grips for mine and
makes a world off difference. Happy shooting
javelin005: @Vtfilamguy - no B.S. this is a great gun. just put another 200 rds through
it without a hitch. this gun shoots excellent and is a great value. I also
own a MAPP1 RIA. good guns for the money.
ooWaffles: Quick question,do standard gi mags run in it or do I have to get mags from
javelin005: I'd love one in 9mm... too bad for me it's probably not on california's
javelin005: @voz39zam -Don't hesitate. Good quality, I'm sure you'll be happy.
prozcrito: Do you have a model number? I want to order one as well. I own one made by
itac and it is very simlar but the retention button does not snap shut when
my RIA compact is holstered. A normal 5" ria will snap right in but mine
won't. I'm wondering if the one on CDNN is different. thanks in advance!
javelin005: any compact mag will work. I have four standard mags i use in it as well.
they all work , they just stick out about 1/4 -3/8 inch past the bottom.
angel blade: what model is it?
javelin005: @FastRedPonyCar -Yes, its reliable and accurate as far as I can tell. We
all know you can get a lemon even if you buy a high grade gun, but as far
as I've heard reported and my personal experience this gun and company are
winners. I would buy from them again.
trippyhipster08: That they did, my dad has a small collection also.
ArmscorPrecision: @javelin005 Thank you for the excellent video! Just remember, if you have
any questions or problems don't hesitate to contact us. We want that gun to
DanielWillis1982: How heavy does it feel while carrying it
javelin005: @AlienZygote010 -it's nice that there are options.
elreservista: Nice work for this gun, no more dissasembly for the cannon, its like others
javelin005: Yup, I'm into super stock cars of the 60's , they had some pretty sweet
looking cars in some of thier older series.
Ron Ron: thanks for sharing! thinking of getting me one soon :) manila made
mikemendoza1969: Beautiful! :)
Thomas Edson: nice vid I am interested in a ria 45 myself not only because it's a 1911
but because it is made in the Phillipines aswell
pedro penduko: Nice review
javelin005: it's the CSP model .
ericjwilliams28: Just got one the other day. I love it! I have an ria commander in 9mm as
well, and its also a great gun.
FastRedPonyCar: Are you still liking this? I've got their tactical version showing up at my
FFL either today or tomorrow as well as a hogue grip and a couple of the
javelin005: You ,should send them an email. I can't find it either. It seems they have
pulled it off the website. I don't get it. that was a great product.
javelin005: Thanks, It's a stock gun pretty much. Just the factory spring.
TheHullraiser: Nice simply explained vid. I had the full size & just got the compact w/
hogue grip Is little different takedown than full( easier) but I like it. I
use the Blackhawk retention on both and like them a lot. Pistols not going
anywhere till release pushed, which is all one motion when drawing. I carry
sig 238 in summer & Taurus pt745 and now RIA1911A1CS too in winter.
Justin Isbell: @javelin005 Hey man I'm about to get me a Rock Island 1911 full frame and
was wondering if that holster you got is made for a 1911. Looked on the
website you mentioned and can't find one for a 1911.
Tango Six: Nice vid sir. Would like to ask if you are using an 18 or 20 pound recoil
trippyhipster08: Johnny lightning!
AMDpro311: I have tried to take the spring assembly out the way you and so many others
do. But that this will just NOT budge. So I have to rely on the paper clip
method, to compress the spring enough to let the assembly slide out, until
it (hopefully) loosens up enough to let me do it without the paper clip.
DSaenz2006: those kydex holseter are nice and smooth, just be careful with them.. over
time mine put some nice little wear scratches on the sides of my slide near
the front of the pistol..
AMDpro311: Hopefully it will work for me one day. I would rather not have to carry
around the clip all the time. Thanks for the reply =)
javelin005: @paikmendez - just buy the tactical compact model . its only a few bucks
more and has the dove tail front sight. the sights on mine are tiny but
this think shoots dead on! i did order some big dot replacement sights from
an ebay vendor but the front sight does require staking so im not sure if i
will install them.
javelin005: @DanielWillis1982 -like its not even there. I carry it when I go shooting
out on the BLM properties.the holster is rigid and secure. the gun is heavy
cause it is all steel but with this holster I hardly notice.
CPM: can u swap the sights? the thing is, i really want one but i'd like to mod
or swap the sights. even if u can't i'm still getting one.
javelin005: No, I just checked their most recent catalog . you can view it on their
webpage. the catalog page 133 shows they carry it but gives no number . you
should call them to verify. it really is a great holster.
Wallpaper?: Hey Javelin005 my man! Thanks for sharing that tip on field stripping that
baby 45. I did not know that it can be done that way without the tools. I
will definitely try it. More power! Shoot safely!
Al T: Great video. This is going to be my first carry. NY is so slowwwwww lol.
javelin005: Yeah, they do where the finish off of guns, that is a down side, the
retention is so solid it's just something I will have to put up with. My
parkerized finish has worn down but honestly I just cant see myself using
any other type of holster. Simply the most rigid and accessible holster
type I have ever used.
javelin005: @AMDpro311 -i know it can be tricky. maybe it just the wierd way i hold the
darn thing. it just feels natural to me. if you need the paper clip method
than so be it. there is no wrong way, as long as it comes apart and goes
back together the same.
javelin005: @sonofevil77 - I think you'll love it, Its heavy but compact and reliable.
it's always on my hip when I'm out shooting at the Federal BLM's.
javelin005: Cool, I hope it works for you.... thanks for watching.
