Rock River Arms Polymer 1911 Now Shipping

You might think of Rock River Arms as an AR manufacturer but in reality the company’s first gun ever was a 1911. Decades later, they’re going back to their handgun roots (can I get a “hell yeah” from my fellow handgun lovers?). At SHOT 2018 they had a polymer 1911 at their booth – that […]
