A tactical single-stack pistol with grips that accommodate for speed, the Tactical 2011 VZ line from Rock Island Armory does not disappoint.
The new 2011 VZ series comes in a single-stack model with a 10mm or .45ACP configuration, complete with a full dust cover rail to even the weight and reduce recoil.
Upgrades included on the Tactical 2011 VZ are the ambidextrous safety, combat hammer and extended beavertail for maximum comfort and safety.
The firearm is also equipped with front and back wide-angled slide serrations, a tactical rail and the new original VZ grip, making this the ultimate Tactical 2011.
The grips included on the pistol are the black, VZ Operator II G10 grips. The G10s have an aggressive golfball pattern and also have an added thumb recess for the magazine release.
The 10mm model of the Tactical 2011 VZ includes a two-dot tactical adjustable rear sight and high visibility fiber optic front sight. The VZ Grip .45ACP includes a two-dot adjustable rear LPA sight and tru-glo high visibility front sights.
The Tactical 2011 VZ 10mm holds eight rounds and has a weight of 2.49 pounds unloaded with a weight of 2.87 pounds loaded. The .45ACP model of the Tactical 2011 also holds eight rounds, but has a heavier weight do to the change in rounds. The pistol has an unloaded weight of 2.82 pounds and loaded weight of 3.25 pounds.
