Rock Island .38 Super 1911 Review




What do you think about this video?

June Lewis: I bought the Armscor .38 Super! The wife and I went out to the farm today, and shot alot. I put close to a hundred rounds through my .38 Super, and not one hiccup. This is my second Armscor 1911; and I plan on buying at least two more. The .38 Super is a very accurate pistol. I could trick this baby out, but I like it the way that it is. Now, to buy some RCBS reloading components, and start reloading this round. By the way, beautiful .38 Super in your video. Thanks for sharing!

greyraptor: armscor bought the colt factory in the philippines when colt decided to move out of the country.tool design,etc. went to armscor but can't call thier product colt, they also produce parts , slide and frame for STI and assemble this 1911 with STI parts and STI sells these 1911 as STI's.

abramtelollo: @TheDagoWop Really hmm makes me wished i got the one i saw instead lol. Oh well next time. Are the .38 super ammunition hard to come by where you live?

TheDagoWop: @kryptoniqz besides do you even own a firearm? No cause u r a lil bitch call of duty clan boy virgin. Stay outta my way so u don't get stepped on lil boy.

JaliscoMexico90: nice RIA you should check out mines.. btw are you serious about Rock Island Armory 1911 were made by colt machines, cuz if its true im very happy with my RIA 1911.

KrypToniQz: Hey, You made a comment on a video about Dale when he crashed and died. You said he should be called Fail Earnhardt. Well, You should make a video review of how effective this PIECE OF crap (kitty) gun is at killing people. Just make sure you're aiming it at your own head though so it saves the world a TON of BULLcrap. Stupid freaking ASSHOLE that needs to learn to have respect. GO DIE and burn in HELL for ETERNITY MOTHER freakER

buttnut1080: Was that full guide spring aftermarket or specific to the model? If it was stock, is there a model(s) that doesn't have one?

TheYellowDart2: Did you do the park finish yourself or did you pay $40 to have it done? I've got the same (also converted to 9mm... way cheaper than 38 super) and know that I'll need to handle the nickel frame sooner or later.

TheDagoWop: And the rod was purchased off eBay.

TheDagoWop: Not a single comment?

Juan Rivera: Hey man, great review and gun. It looks just as good in reverse of what I have. For the money, you're not going to find a better deal than the RIA. And the .38 Super is just sweet to shoot at the lower of the 357 loads. Great job!

TheDagoWop: @abramtelollo not too hard. I know 3 places I can go buy. But it's gonna cost 35 or more per 50. I'm actually in the middle of fitting a new barrel. That way I can swap between .38 super and 9mm. For cheap shooting.

abramtelollo: Man thats a nice 38 super. Does the nickel finish stain easily? You know with peoples hands and what not? I got. .45 RIA just to let a fellow ria owner know lol. I have a vid about it not as informative as this one lol.

TheDagoWop: Lol thank u for the compliment. And the advice. I've since fitted a new barrel. I re chambered it to 9mm

TheDagoWop: @abramtelollo the nickel accepts fingerprints better than any finish. But if you keep it clean it will look better than any finish out there. I love it. But the problem lies in rlthe frame. Ria 1911s have a solid steel slide that holds the nickel very well. Bit the frame is a steel alloy and the nickel wears very fast on it. At least mine did. But 40 dollars solved that problem with havin the frame parkerized. Looks awesome too.

TheDagoWop: @kryptoniqz wow sounds like someone wiped back to front n got a lil poo in her snatch. Lol first of all the 1911 is a fantastic gun. And second of all your mother is a whore. Lol I woke up and saw this comment and it made my day. Lol thank you.

TheDagoWop: Thank you truth. I take pride in it.

tommyevans2440: Yes 4th comment!

kTCxDEICIDEx .: The upgrades look good! How's the nickel finish on the slide holding up?

Brian Connolly: nice gun, nice reveiw, but KEEP YO FINGER OFF THE TRIGGER UNTIL YOU ARE READY TO SHOOT!!!!!!lol

TheDagoWop: @the yellowdart2, I had it done by entreprise arms of irwindale ca.

greyraptor: armscor bought the colt factory in the philippines a long time ago and they continued building 1911's. they also manufacture slide and frame and assemble 1911 for STI.

mattdraffen87: where did you get your information about there machines being from colt? just curious

TheDagoWop: @buttnut1080 I used the factory recoil spring from the standard m1911a1 govt.

TheDagoWop: @ktcxdecidex the nickel is holding very well. I don't holster it tho. But if u do, get a felt lined leather one.
