Rock Island Armory Introduces Sleek New Look for Legendary 1911’s

Rock Island Armory, the world’s largest seller of 1911 pistols, has introduced a new look for their entire line of popular handguns. Guided by customer feedback and a shift to provide a more streamlined look, Rock Island Armory has moved their logo from the side of the slide to the back of the slide displaying the distinctive Rock Island Armory logo. The company is now shipping all 1911 pistols with the new look.

“Two of the things that are important to us are staying true to the legendary standard platform of the 1911 and the second is listening to our customers,” said Martin Tuason, President of Rock Island Armory. “We were ready to refresh the look of our pistols and we heard a lot of feedback that the subtle change to a smaller logo at the back of the slide would give our 1911’s a more distinctive and streamlined look.”

The new visual change to the company’s 1911 pistols follows on the heels of the addition of rubber grips to the 1911 Tactical Series. Rock Island Armory’s global lineup of 1911 pistols includes the GI, Tactical, 2011 Tactical, Match, MAP/MAPP and the company’s revolutionary TCM series.

Orange County Shooting Range Field Time Review

After visiting the range for the first time a month back, I was extremely impressed with both the layout, cleanliness, and modernization of this range in comparison to many of the surrounding offerings. They allow rifle and pistol on the lines (excluding .50 of course), and the ventilation system was definitely something the owners should be proud of (no lead poisoning worries here).

They have a large selection of ammunition at reasonable prices which they both manufacture and sell in-house. The equipment room where the loading takes place would make any gun owner drool with jealousy.

They are centrally located in Orange County off of Beach Blvd. and Katella which makes access for most shooters rather easy (to get any more central would have been a nightmare in permitting and licensing I am certain). The crowds there are easily manageable given the large layout and extra lounge space available to patrons.

I would highly recommend any shooter in Orange County area stop by to take a look at this beautiful new range. We are excited to return and bring more of the collection!

Marine Special Operations Select Colt .45!

In order to fulfill a new contract from the Marine Corps' special operations, Colt will manufacture more than 10k new CQB Pistols to be put to use by some of our nation's best and most elite servicemen. Along with this new contract for the 1911 based pistols, they plan to phase out the M45s currently used by the Corps.

As was announced on Military.com, “The July 19 [2012] contract, which has a total value of $22.5 million, brings an end to the Corps’ exhaustive search for the top .45 caliber, 1911-style pistol to replace the fleet of worn-out Marine Corps Forces Special Operations Command, or MARSOC, M45 pistols.”

“We picked the best-performing pistol,” said Charles Clark III. Clark is in charge of overseeing infantry weapons requirements and research at the Corps’ Combat Development and Integration office in Quantico, Va. “There were three candidates that made the final round of consideration.”

In addition to Colt, Springfield Armory's Full Size MC Operator and Smith & Wesson's 1911 design were also contenders, said the sources on Military.com.
