First let me say, I will put pics up tomorrow after I get home from church. I had been looking around for a cco and received a wonderful offer from a member here on a great gun with a great price, who waited while I tried to get the money together, but I couldn't swing it in the long run. Feeling a little down, I was looking around on gunbroker and found a great deal on a RIA tactical compact which had 2 mags through it. I own a RIA GI and have every confidence in the product, so I bought it. After some transfer headaches (and an experience with a local store I won't use for transfers ever again) the gun arrived today. The gun is solid and feels great. It has slight, slight side to side slide movement, and very slight grip safety side to side movement. I mean it when I say slight. The trigger feels like a wide trigger and is on par with the $500-$700 guns I have been messing with lately. I bought a Wilson mag and some VZ 320 grips in grey/black. Put on the new grips when I got home and it looks sweet (sorry no pics yet). So I decided to fiddle with the mags in the gun. I loaded the original mag with my department issued Speer 230gr hollowpoints. When I hand cycled the slide (slingshotted?) it chambered everytime. It choked when I used the slide release though.I tried the same with the Wilson mag, and it chambered every hollowpoint using the slide release. Well now I was feeling pretty good. I took the 2 empty test casings which came with the gun, loaded them in the Wilson mag and the whole process repeated. The gun chambered the empty casings using the slide release. The original mags wouldn't chamber the empties. I don't know if this is a testament to the gun, to the Wilson mag or to both, but I am impressed so far. I know this does not mean I will see the same results on the range, but this first impression was extremely favorable. Will post pics tomorrow and hope to have a range report monday.
