Default Rock Island tac 2 4 commander

I got an early father's day present my son gave me a Rock Island tac 2 commander. 45 acp early couldn't be more excited once I got all the oil off lol. Going to the range tomorrow run some hardball through it to loosen it up .This is my first Rock Island act first .45 since my divorce took a kimber tactical pro and Springfield loaded hope this shoots half as good I will be very happy.

"getting the oil off" should include the firing pin channel and internals. The treatment on the gun, if new, is a rust inhibitor, not oil at all.

I bought a Citadel 3.5" yesterday.

The Philippine guns have a pretty good reputation for price versus performance.

They seem to rate in between Norincos and name brand U.S. guns, sometimes better. I recall seeing Colts in the '80s that didn't compare well with my gun.

RIA's are one of the best (for the money) 1911's on the market. I have both a 9mm and a 45 both in the compact (Officers Model) size. I probably have 1000 rounds through the 9mm by now, and it is going strong.
