Sleek and shiny. Any fly that will land there can slide and break a leg.

Nice RIA.

Nice!

I want to get an RIA for my bro when he gets back from Afghan...


Do they make a .45ACP RIA in polished nickel? Seems to me they only sell it in 38super

I got the deal off Gearhog a couple weeks ago. The fit is perfect, very smooth. I have not had a chance to shoot with it yet, definitely this week. The color is very well matched to the RIA the finish is just shinier. Nothing some wet sanding cant fix... Scratch that off the list.

Thanks!

Now the question really is:


Is it on the roster? :(



EDIT:

I was just looking at their online pdf catalog... And I almost started crying seeing the wide-open selection of items available in that state (KY) with no restriction and such ready availability and fair pricing. :TFH:

they're slim-line FRAGs from VZ Grips. they do the thumb notch for a couple of bucks extra. they also appear a lot more aggressive than they really feel.

Don't mean to thread jack with a question, but ....

Does any have a tip or secret of how to remove the mag release?
I purchased an extended one i want to add but cannot get the stock one out.

ASTMedic 06-20-2012 9:39 AM

Seller called nineteen11_grips on eBay. I think he's got a site unde the same name that has all his options listed. I love them cus they're not overly rough but still have grip and cheap.

itisagoodname 06-24-2012 8:47 PM

Went to the range again today. First time ive shot with the compensator.... I absolutely love it!

Now i also noticed 2 more things, one is that im left eye dominant, and 2 that my front sight is bent slightly to the left. I thought i was shooting to the right due to the uncomfortable trigger, but i got it down today shooting some really nice groups at 10 yards. Pulled off the slide to look clser and sure enough, the front sight is definately bent.

Jayson_L 06-24-2012 11:58 PM

Here my baby b4 the range.
