Can anyone give me the scoop on the Armscor Rock island .45's? They have been going really cheap (for .45's) online lately. The auction below is a relisting of a New-In-Box pistol that went a week without any bids at $370 and was just relisted.
I should know all about these by now, and have tried one out, but I haven't been getting out much lately.

1) Why so inexpensive?
2) How reliable are they?
3) What features are they lacking to make them $500 to $1000 cheaper than the "big brand names"

I have a shooting buddy that bought one and sold it asap, he bought it cheap at 4 bills and had nothing but problems with feeding ammo, problems with the rails hanging up upon feeding next round. These guns were made in the Philippines for import, and warranty was non-existent.

Bottom line is you pay for what you get, my advice is to stick to the name brands.

I bought one when they first showed up on the market and after installing a beaver tail grip safety and beveling and polishing the feed ramp I have had no malfunctions with it, even with hollow points, and it is reasonably accurate to boot.
