    The last of 2 posts showing Rock River Arms 1911s.

    A newer gun, purchased in 2018.

    This is another friend's gun. The model is the Carry Pistol.
    Fixed Tritium RRA sights, single safety, Parkerized
    Trigger pull is 3# 12oz.

    This is about all you really need in a 1911. Not cheap but certainly not as much as many of the comparable guns.

    Cool

    I have an earlier RR 1911 - can't think of the "product" number/name. 5" .45ACP, with nothing special except dual safety levers and slightly more conventional sights. And a Pick (I can't spell it at 0500) rail on the bottom of the dust cover for a bayonet? ( )

    It's very heavy, but shoots beautifully, and the weight eats up recoil. Makes it a tad more accurate for me ( ), although the rail doesn't like any of my holsters. (Just a range gun.)

    I did have to clean up the safety levers - nearly sharp enough to shave with - but I know how to do some of that.

    Good choice for a "second line) weapon - nightstand, truck, etc. My EDC is a Para CCO - 3.5 barrel, Officer's sized frame, LDA. I also have an M&P40C, a full sized M&P40, and a .40Cal Shield. The two smaller ones are nice choices for EDC or at least deep concealment, but that's me.

    Regards,
    Stu.

    Stu,

    Just having "eyes open" at 0500 would be an accomplishment for me.

    The Picatinny rail is normally used to secure lights such as the Surefire X400 series or the similar Streamlights. I suppose you could mount a bayonet but that would defiantly eliminate appendix carry as an option.

    I use the Safariland 560-53 series paddle holster with a few simple modifications. Works well for me.

    I really like the weight of the gun and it's one of few that I haven't had to smooth edges; I was able to order the gun and added a few options.

    There are railed gun photos in my "Post 1".

    Jim
