The Rock Island Armory (RIA) line of pistols is manufactured by Armscor in Marikina City, Philippines, and distributed in America by Armscor USA out of Pahrump, Nev. From foreign shores to U.S. production, Rock Island Armory is a company with an intriguing history and heritage, but it also builds a comprehensive line of M1911 pistols to suit almost any need and budget.

While many of company's pistols are basic, value-priced clones of the U.S. Military G.I. M1911-A1, its Tactical line includes models that have been fitted with features and upgrades. Last year, Armscor expanded its line of Tactical II FS pistols to include two versions in 10 mm.

A modern interpretation of the M1911, the 10 mm Tactical II possesses competition-style sights-fiber-optic front and fully-adjustable rear-a flared magazine well, aggressively-textured G10 stocks and a full-length guide rod. The latter necessitates the use of a paperclip to retain the spring during disassembly.
