Rock Island M206

Recommended Posts

My stepson picked 1 up a while back on a whim and now wants to sell it. Looks like I can get it for $140.

Going to take it to the range this week. If it's a shooter I'm probably going to buy it.

Seems like they do a lot of colt clones. I have an RIA 1911 tactical (I hate that word!) that shoots pretty good.

I’ve heard they’re made on Colt machinery. I think I read that Colt made pistols there then licensed the Filipinos to make them. Kinda like the Sistemas.

There are a few mim parts on it, but for my purposes it suits me. 

If done right, there’s nothing wrong with mim.

How did I post just "the"?

 

In dry firing it seems to have a fairly decent trigger. Single action is light and crisp and double action is long and smooth with out being overly heavy.

Will post more once I take it to the range.

I'm impressed with the fit and finish for a gun that cost $260 new out the door

$140? Wow!  

I have a RIA 1911 9mm and it's been awesome.  I know many folks who have RIA 1911s in both 9 and 45 and they are very good guns, especially for the money.
