Rock Island Armory .22 TCM 1911 Pistol
Samples of this pistol and ammunition combination have been kicking around since this summer, but now Rock Island Armory is ready to put this pistol into shooters’ hands. The Armscor .22 TCM cartridge is based on the 9 mm Luger, necked down to accept .223 caliber bullets. Loaded with a 40-grain jacketed hollow point, this round can achieve velocities of 2,100 fps from Rock Island’s full-size 1911 platform. The pistol is designed to accept double-stack magazines, and 9 mm conversion barrels will be available.
