FWIW I paid 435.00 NIB for my Rock Island. First thing I did was clean the crap out of it. It had so much grease on it you could lube a VW. For the money spent I don't consider it a bad weapon at all. I also have had to qualify many times with a 1911 so I am very familiar with them.

I'm looking at a 10mm, 5", single stack, fiber optic adjustable sites, and an accessories rail.

Philippines. At least it's not China.

Plus, I once had a Argentine made Colt (licensed by Colt), and it shot as well as any other standard .45.
