I put the GI guide rod and spring in my PT1911 and I've never gone back. Functions great and I think you'll like it in your Rock as well. By the way, I love the tactical sights, as opposed to the traditional 1911 sights.

I thought this holster would be fitting for a pistol design well over one hundred years old. Pretty sure holsters like this were still commonly in use back then. It will be useful at the range I think. No plan to use it for carry since I have other pistols and holsters for that.

I like it! That's a classic holster that dresses up your shooter!

Didn’t wait long enough to use the Dremel. New rosewoods arrived pretty quickly. You can back up a page or two to see them.

I've thought about possibly selling my RIA 1911, I haven't shot it in over a year. Took the darn thing out yesterday and fell in love all over again! It's been on my hip all day! Lol.
Great shooter and great testament to John Browning design!

They had quite a selection when I got mine. I'd like to see what you chose, when you get them. (y)
