Armscor, known for its ammunition and service-grade Rock Island Armory M1911 pistols, is pairing these guns to a unique and proprietary cartridge—the .22 TCM. Speed was the key ingredient for designer Fred Craig and Armscor president Martin Tuason as they developed the TCM (Tuason Craig Micro-magnum). Using 40-gr. bullets pressed into a shortened and necked down 5.56x45 mm NATO case, the cartridge is comparable in size to the 9 mm Luger.
The Rock Target FS HC reviewed here is what you would expect from such a renowned gun builder of M1911-style pistols. Notwithstanding the gun’s widened grip-frame, double-stack magazine and switchable chambering—the Rock Target ships with a 9 mm barrel and recoil spring—the pistol is purely M1911 in style. Features include a 5” barrel, LPA’s fully-adjustable rear sight, skeletonized hammer and trigger, and it is parkerized for durability.
