    Talk me into ... or out of ... a new RIA TCM TAC Ultra FS HC combo

    So I've been kicking around the thought of a new TCM TAC Ultra FS HC combo for a while. I'm not sold on the .22 TCM, but since I do like the 9mm (and it doesn't cost that much more to have the .22 as a package), this is the direction I'm heading. I've had a double-stack 1911 stuck in the cobwebs of my head ever since Para was selling bare wide-body frames.

    I know there are a few YouTube videos out there where people love them - but a lot of people love everything when doing a YouTube video. So just looking for experiences - good, bad or indifferent.

    One immediate question: Is there a higher capacity magazine available? Factory is 17 rounds, but my understanding is ... maybe ... a Para mag with a different baseplate will work. I haven't researched it at length, but what I've seen is a few years old ... and often contradictory. Just wondering if there was a fail-safe solution discovered at some point.

    Thanks,

    Let us know how it goes. I've toyed with this idea as well but just haven't taken the leap.

    I have a matched pair. To be honest I have never even installed the TCM barrel. I got them to have high cap 9mm 1911s. I have other RIA 1911s and they have been good with some work so I went for these. So far I have about 3000 rounds through each. I put Ed Brown ambi safeties and Dawson fiber optic front sights along with G10 grips. One pistol ran pretty good out of the box. The other had some double feed issues. I tuned the extractor on both, the pistol with the issues only had 6 pounds on the extractor. I also did just a little internal polishing but not much on these. The fit on these was noticeably better than the first couple RIAs I got. I have set a bunch of training sessions with them and put them through their paces and after the first 200 rounds I have not had any malfunctions. As for magazines, if your pistol has the mag well on it you will need the ones with the RIA floor plate. If it does not then the Mec-Gar Para mags work perfectly. They are both 17 rounders and I am not aware of any with larger capacity. To sum up for the money they are great and after just a little making them right they have been extremely reliable. I absolutely love mine. Hope this helps. Good luck

    We have a review on the Commander sized one in the latest M1911.ORG E-zine.

    I’ve tried about 10 times to post a link to the article in the E-zine, but nothing seems to work, sorry.

    Let's see if THIS works:

    It seems to work for me.
