ria.jpgDon't know how many people have stumbled on to the Rock Island Compacts, but by the guns I have been building the most of lately....quite a few. I can't say that they are perfect right out of the box, but it doesn't take a lot of changes to make them outstanding. If you're a bucks down person, I highly recommend them. I have been gunsmithing for 45 years and it's not very often you come across a really nice weapon to start with at reasonable prices.
Star PD, Star BM and Firestar, The new Arcus copy of the Browning Hi-Power, and the RIA Compact. This business of paying 1200 bucks for a handgun is killing us. And by the way, the Taurus brand has a lot going for it as does Kel Tec. ROCK ON LOW BUCK!!!
