If you like the feel of a 1911 but prefer a 9 mm shot, check out this new gun from rock island armory. It even comes with the exotic .22 TCM barrel conversion. Almost like having to guns in one. The company is solid and originally out of the Philippines. These brothers do good work. They are nice people to talk to —all around. Here’s me and the head dude of RIA, “Bolo”.
For every day carry it’s a little heavy but depending on your size, you might be able to work it out. It is definitely a collectible and a fun gun to own though.
I really enjoyed shooting this gun.
RIA is famous for mastering the development of the 1911 platform. For over 30 years, they’ve advanced the scope of their research and engineering team with the commercial launch of the meteoric 22 TCM cartridge in the 1911 format. Delivering over 2000 fps in a handgun while offering both single stack and high capacity options, the TCM series introduces the most potent and versatile 1911 in the market today. It’s known for light recoil without sacrifice in muzzle energy and penetrating impact abilities. Also built in mid size, full size and high capacity options with both Standard and Tactical configurations, each TCM series handgun includes a drop-in 9mm barrel adding another proven ammunition option in one firearm. Once you rule the fire breathing dragon, you’ll never want to put it down.
Rock island armory
The TCM Rock Standard MS HC is constructed in 4140 Ordnance steel and refined by our carefully managed hand fitting process. (not a light gun)
It’s built to drive the factory original Rock Island 22 TCM cartridge at over 1850fps and features a 4.25” barrel with penetrating impact and unprecedented light recoil. Add a double stack mag well with 17-round capacity and the TCM MS Rock Standard earns respect for delivering a constant high velocity payload. Includes a skeletonized hammer and trigger with adjustable over travel stop and low profile anti-snag front and rear sights. This pistol is fitted with checkered polymer grips and finished with a durable parkerized coating.
Complete with a drop-in 9mm accessory barrel, the TCM Rock Standard offers the best in old and new.
