[51431]
$471.00

What a nice pistol! Buds service and tracking were great. As soon as I received the pistol, I cleaned all the cosmoline off, and lubed it well. I also upgraded the grips to wood/rubber pachmayr grips, and bought 2 Wilson Combat 47D mags. The first time I loaded the mag that came with the pistol (an ACT mag,) I loaded it with hollow points. The first round wouldn't even chamber. Hard ball loaded fine. I took the RIA to the range this past Saturday, and WOW. I used a variety of cartridges (from defensive JHP to target FMJ,) with no hiccups, and it's very accurate. In fact, this pistol has replaced my FNP 45 as my bedside firearm (the FNP has shot over a thousand rounds for me with no problems.) The fit of this gun was surprising, with no rattles and good mating of parts. One disappointment for me are the sights, which have no markings on them. Even so, this is my most accurate pistol right now. I highly recommend it.
