I am looking at getting a Rock Island Armory 1911 Tactical model, it the one with the rail system, but no night sights.

Current prices are show to be in the $470 range.

Any first hand experiences with the Tactical model? Suggestions, input or anything else I should know?

Shot one, own the non-Tac model. They are very nice guns as to the fit and finish of a 1911.
I have had a 9mm RIA Tactical for about two years now and fired several thousand rounds through it. It is a well fitted pistol and very accurate with several different 9mm factory and reloads. My 9mm Tactical likes the Federal "American Eagle" 115 grain FMJ, Winchester 115 grain FMJ and Winchester 147 grain "Personal Protection" round factory ammo.

I really like the sights. I wish my RIA 45 ACP had the Tactical sights.

I have a number of reloaded 9mm's that shoot well also. For the money, the Tactical is well worth buying.
A buddy of mine who works at a gun store told me he could get me a Rock Island Armory 1911 Tactical for his cost.

Even though I bought a Remington 1911 R1 last week, I am thinking about buying a Rock Island Armory 1911 Tactical in the next month or two.
