    That may be a tough sell. I'm pretty sure you can still get those nib from rra.

    Rock River no longer produces handguns. They stopped to concentrate on the rifles. Also not to be confused with RIA.

    buy a Range Officer for $1000 less, then send it to the SACS and have the FS checkered, and Nowlins barrel fit, refinish and trigger job. you'll still be a couple hundred less.

    How long ago was this? I was under the impression that you could no longer get a nib RRA.
    You could get the RO but its not the same to someone who really wants an RRA in the stable. I wouldn't buy I don't like this particular one.

    So you still can get them? So why the outrageous prices for some of them?

    I don't think RRA has any "leftovers" available any more, I'm not completely sure. The prices were crazy anyway, way higher than the $1700 on this listing. I picked up my second LM in late October, and I think they only had one or two guns left then, but they were way expensive, as you can see from Quack's post.

    I called in early December and they still had hardballs and wadcutters. Seems like something else, but those for sure.

    ... and as I understood it, their dealer prices were what was once listed as their retail prices...

    Inquired last week. RRA required my FFL to call. They have 3 models NIB at factory. Wholesale is $2500, at least that's what my FFL quoted, for the Tactical.

    They still have 3 models left. Tactical, Hardball and Wadcutter. That one on GB is one of them. Sorry, but it's not for me. Actually, I don't have any interest in any of the three remaining models.

    Way overpriced.

    From what I understand RRA was still building guns to fill orders as of last summer. I have NO idea what is the case now.

    Good to know my FFL wasn't bs'ing me on the "oh, it's $2500 wholesale?" For a second I thought he was jacking the price up so I'd think it was a good deal and thank my lucky stars I wasn't paying more.

    Supply v demand is great but highway robbery is not.
