    Have a chance to pick up a used RRA GI in like new shape. We can't agree on a price. Right now we are stuck at $350. Is that fair?
    I want to pick one up to be a range/truck/camping gun so I don't beat up my Springfield.

    Guess you meant RIA (Rock Island Armory) and NOT
    RRA (Rock River Arms)?

    A RRA is $1500 and up.
    A RIA should sell for $350-450.

    What is the condition? Round count? Mags? Unmodded?

    A Springfield is a MUCH better weapon for a few hundred more.

    If it's a RRA, and you don't buy it, PM me and I'll buy it.

    A new RIA would probably be just over $400. $350 is a little much for a used one, unless it is in excellent condition with low round count.

    OP stated "like new condition" this with what sounds like a ftf sale would make it well worth $350-400

    I bought a used but never fired GI with Hogue wrap around grips over the summer for $350. I put 300 rounds through it, pulled the Hogues off ,and sold it for $350. I say if it's in good shape go for it.

    $350 seems fair.

    Like others said, its an RIA, not RRA. BIG difference.

    Seems to me that when I was looking at my RIA Tactical, they had a RIA GI in the case as well for less than $400. I don't remember exactly, but I'm thinking it was either at or just under $375 NIB. This was sometime in April. So $350 wouldn't be anything that would make me pull my wallet, even if I was in the market for one of these.

    Never seen a RRA in person. Seen a few pics on this board, but that's about the extent of my experience with them.

    MY mistake guys...it is a RIA 45 GI unmodified. owner claims less than two hundred rounds. I field stipped it and all internal parts looked clean. It only comes with one 7-round mag which isn't a big deal to me as I have about 10 1911 mags, but I made it seem like a deal breaker. I offered him $320 and told him to throw in another mag. We will see if he calls me back or not.

    Thanks for the help on the price guys.
