The first time I shot this gun it would not shoot more than 3 rounds with out the trigger sticking and the cylinder release was jamed and would not work properly and the more I shot it the worse it got I\'m contacted the manufacturer and there going to fix or replace it I have other firearms from this this manufacturer and they all work just fine but I am very disappointed with build quality with this particular model

I picked up my RIA m206 from my FFL yesterday afternoon. I am writing this review on the first time buying process from Buds, and the first impression of the revolver. I will update my review, or create a new one after i put some rounds through it this weekend. First of all, this was my first purchase from buds and first time going through an FFL transfer. SUPER EASY PROCESS. Could not be happier. Bud's had the revolver there within 3 days of order, filled out the paperwork for background, and was out the door. First impression on the RIA, is positive overall. I read a lot of reviews on this, so i Knew what to expect. Some obvious machining marks, Some light scratches here and there, but overall it looks pretty darn good for what we're paying for this. Comes in a nice hard case, with a manual, and the extra black pachmyer style grips. The 206 comes covered in packing oil, so once i got that taken off and went over it again with some CLP. It looks great. I was concerned because as i was dry firing with some snapcaps, going through double action, there was one cylinder that the trigger would bind up on, trigger would lock up half way pulled and i would have to release then pull again. Next time it binded up, I pulled back VERY hard on the trigger and it fired. After that, all is well. I don't know if there was some machining issue, but now all cylinders in double and single action are very very smooth. Feels great. SIngle action is a real light snappy pull. Double action is heavy as usual, but silky smooth, after i got the forementioned issue taken care of. I am excited to shoot, and i will let you all know how it goes. So far, I am happy with it. I own other high end firearms and decided, WHY NOT, on a 250 dollar 6 shot w/ a lifetime warranty.

Took this revolver to the range yesterday. The timing of off when pulling the hammer back slowly. More importantly, and very disturbing is that consistantly only 3 to 4 rounds would fire. The longer I worked with the revolver, the less it would fire. I used several different brands, but it yeilded the same results. I contacted their customer service department at Armscor and it was a total disaster. The phone only continues to ring after the intro message and no one answers. The online \'chat\' feature was not helpful either. I completed the online warranty form and it indicates that someone will be with me in 1 to 3 days. Obviously, this is not acceptable to me with a new revolver. I know this is a \'value\' priced gun, but I really wanted to like it given that it offers 6 shots compared with 5. I\'ll update when Armscor customer service resonds to this issue and how they service this defective revolver.

WOW WOW WOW!!! im utterly at awe. What a great 38 special. I just purchased this online of course from buds gun shop. Let me make it nice a simple here folks. For 250.00 you are DEFINATELY getting a great home defense and or conceal carry. Im a huge fan of 38 revolver and just sold my S&W 38 bodyguard that was ok. But im sooo glad i got this Rock island 38. It comes with a decent case and extra handle that i highly recommend changing to the black. More ergonomic and better grasp. I shot it today and WOW. Smooth operator and right on target. Yes the parkerized finish is dull but so what. Its a great revolver. Im keeping my miss lady. Fyi when you buy one be prepared to see tons of oil on it. Its perfectly normal. Thats how ROCK ISLAND GETS DOWN.
