Pahrump, NV – -(Ammoland.com)- Rock Island Armory, the world’s largest seller of 1911 pistols, has introduced a new look for their entire line of popular handguns.

Guided by customer feedback and a shift to provide a more streamlined look, Rock Island Armory has moved their logo from the side of the slide to the back of the slide displaying the distinctive Rock Island Armory logo.

The company is now shipping all 1911 pistols with the new look.

“Two of the things that are important to us are staying true to the legendary standard platform of the 1911 and the second is listening to our customers,” said Martin Tuason, President of Rock Island Armory.

“We were ready to refresh the look of our pistols and we heard a lot of feedback that the subtle change to a smaller logo at the back of the slide would give our 1911’s a more distinctive and streamlined look.”

The new visual change to the company’s 1911 pistols follows on the heels of the addition of rubber grips to the 1911 Tactical Series. Rock Island Armory’s global lineup of 1911 pistols includes the GI, Tactical, 2011 Tactical, Match, MAP/MAPP and the company’s revolutionary TCM series.

      The new plastics are taking over the handgun industry , why not a ” 1911-ACP ” in the plastics to reduce weight and keep pace with the industry .

    4. I personally like the smooth sided slide look. I never liked forward slide serrations or a rail on 1911s. But then again I’m a traditionalist . The features i I prefer are checkered flat mainspring housing ,checkered front strapmatching rear strap,Extended combat thumb safety,commander style hammer,beaver tail grip safety ,and lightened medium length trigger (ala kimbers style) ,plus charging rear sights this new look rock island 191 appears to fit well into my model 1911 , a move forward! Good for them!
