Stupid Rock Island Armory


Recommended Posts

I ordered all the parts to convert my very nice RIA XT22 to 45ACP.

I guess they intend these parts for custom 1911 builders because many of the parts were oversized and required extensive fitting.

I no longer have a workbench set up so did this with files and sandpaper on the table.

The sonofabitchin barrel had to be fitted in every direction. Had to hand fit six surfaces on that damned barrel, all with little files and three grades of sandpaper.

The extractor and firing pin stop had to be fitted A's well as the full lenght guide rod which was too long.

Damn my fingers are sore.

Finally got it all done after eight hours anf it won't feed a single round of three different brands of ammo from any mag I own.

I start back on it tomorrow but I alreadg hate it.
