    Those damn dealers......:) I think that damn RRA increased in value from the time it left here to the time it landed at Joe's. Another one of those "I know I am going to regret this" moments. :rofl:

    Wouldnt surprise me. It's listed with an Ohio address, and they aren't shown on the sellers website.

    For a pistol they are trying to get $2800 for you think they could at least wipe the fingerprints and mold off of it. :faint:

    The fitment on that Tactical model's GS is a little off if you take a close look at the pics.

    There are two schools of thoughts on this matter.

    1) blend for a seamless transition between the tangs and BTGS, when the GS is depressed (aka on position).

    2) blend for a seamless transition between the tangs and BTGS, when the GS is pressed (aka off position).

    Look like the Tactical used the latter option. While minimal as it may seem, some prefer it like this as to not irritate the web of the shooter's hand. YMMV.

    My personal preference is the former, since it doesn't irritate the web of my hand.

    Thank you. :) But Brian's LM is one of the best looking RRA's I know of. :thumbsup: Altough,...:whistling:... I might just change my mind after mine gets a new front sight and gets hardchromed. :cool:
