RIA 22 TCM, 9mm Combo

This was my last purchase of 2012, the hard to find RIA 22 TCM/9mm Combo.

I read a lot of reviews and watched a lot of videos about the 22 TCM and was amazed at the performance, over 2000fps, recoil is minor and itís accurate out at 50 yards.

I have been looking for one and missed my chance with two that were listed on Gunbroker, both sold before I could make my final decision to buy.

While I was at my LGS witnessing the crazy circus of panic buyers I mention to my contact that I was looking for the TCM, he stated that he had one coming in that very week, I asked him to put my name on it and call me when it came in. Picked it up after Christmas for $620.00 and bought a box of 22 TCM for $25 to try out.

The RIA 22 TCM comes with a 9mm barrel, this was a win win situation for me because I wanted a 1911 style 9mm anyway. Another plus is the high capacity mag, double stack 17 round 9mm or 22 TCM. You only get one mag with the gun, ho-well, one is better than none. Finding another mag will be troublesome until all the panic buying is over.

The TCM ammo price did not detour me because I will reloading this round. I found a source for the brass, bullets and dies, along with reloading data.

Hope to hit the range this week!

The trigger is surprisingly lightcompared to the RIA 10mm. I have a digital trigger gauge coming in Friday so I'll post the exact weigh then.

Congrats! I've been interested in the 22 TCM round ever since I heard of it a year or so ago. Can't wait to hear how it shoots.
