Well...the one I owned was cheap, and crap. YMMV, and I hope it does.
I won't be travelling that road again.
Rock Island had a bad rep several years ago but the stuff they're making now is top shelf as far as reliability is concerned. I don't like the grips and the finish is chalky looking until its oiled, then it looks pretty good. Their customer service is some of the best in the business. Any problem you have no matter how small they will take care of.
