    Picked up a RIA Tac awhile back and it was shooting way low and left.
    Sent it back to Armscor precision for Arnel to take a look at.
    He wound up putting a new slide, taller rear sight, tuned the internals and polished the feed ramp and barrel.
    I put about 150 rounds if WWB and 75 rounds of my 200 grn swc.
    Not one hiccup, and now shoots to poa.
    Need to spend a little more quality time with her, but I think she is a keeper now.
    Anyway, wanted to give Arnel, and Armscor 2 thumbs up for their outstanding customer service, and commitment to providing a quality product, especially for the price.
    Thanks.

    When I got my .38Super Government RIA, it had a loose extractor. RIA took it back ASAP. Some day I hope it will come back home.

    It was close to 4 weeks, but they were gone for a week to the shot show.

    Very positive. Arnel called me when he had finished working on the gun to tell all about the work he had done on it.

    I like those grip panels. Are they factory?

    These grip panels are some that I made trying out laminating layers of burlap with resin. Kind of a home made Micarta. There are 32 layers of burlap, saturated with resin, and then clamped between 2 boards.
    Just an experiment, but the looks are growing on me.
    Here is a better shot of them.
