    took her out for the first time yesterday
    she ate up 200 rounds rather quick
    few hiccups as the magazines broke in, but it felt great, especially towards the end of the trip

    and now the gun porn

    They kind of come with that old look. They aren't lookers but they run like champs.

    I want the match version. All of the RIA models I have played with have awesome triggers too. If my job survives budget cuts I may have to get one.

    I really like the prices on these RIAs. From reviews I've read they seem to be good guns for the price.

    Good Buy!
    I really enjoy my RIA Tac., Only upgrade i diid was new grips.
    (only problem i have with mine is that the mag springs push up so hard it won't feed that 8 rnds of HP. The first rnd jams into the ramp at times. Feed 7 rnds 100% of the time)

    Good Shooting
