Rock Island Armory's Full-Featured Midsize VZ 10mm

Rock Island Armory — a Nevada-based manufacturer of 1911 Pistols — continues to innovate in 2014, as proven by the release of their full-featured VZ 10mm.

The latest iteration in Rock Island’s line of quality TAC 2011 pistols, the Midsize VZ 10mm features, as denoted, VZ’s justly renowned G-10 grips. But, that’s not all: Also included with this new gun are a bevy of tactical bells and whistles, such as a two-dot Tactical Adjustable rear sight, a TruGlo high-visability fiber-optic front sight, integral Picatinny rail, an extended beavertail for added comfort and safety, and single-wide slide serrations.

The VZ 10mm also boasts a five-inch barrel, an eight-round capacity, a parkerized frame and slide, an unloaded weight of 2.49 pounds, a loaded weight of 2.87 pounds, and a trigger pull of four to six pounds. The result is a heavy-hitting, 8-inch-long overall 1911, chambered in 10mm, primed to prevail in any self-defense situation. See below for additional details.
