only thing i changed on my RIA tactical was the sights, had the front changed to fiber, and the rear changed to white dot fixed tactical.
only other thing i would even consider doing for cosmetic reasons, would be to get the sides shaved a little to lighten / remove the rollmark and possibly get it cerakoted to make the finish look better.
shoot it, then decide if the 300 to 400 in work you did, wouldnt justifye just buying a RIA match model, where all the hand fitting has already been done for an additional 200 or so.
