Whirli what’s your take on Rock Island 1911s. I have heard a lot of people are using them for a base and then upgrading various parts to come out with some really nice, accurate pistols. I bought one in 9mm here a while back for 350 and was thinking of tinkering with it to learn how to work on 1911s. Any suggestions on whether it is worth the time or what part to start with?
