Default Looky what I got!!!

Rock Island VZ 10mm

Also included:
Extra Kimber mag
The ammo seen above
And $100

I traded one of my lower level AR builds for it, I only had $700 into the rifle. By my estimates I'm about $140 ahead on this deal.

What do y'all think??

The light washes out the color of the grips. They are more blue than they look.

Very nice 1911. Now we need a range report.

10mm is hard on the guns that chamber them. Heck of a round!
I was in a toss up a couple months ago between the 10mm and the .45. Went ahead and stayed with .45. I have very little complaints about RIA, other than junk mag, uncomfortable grips, and a cheap parkerizing job. Function is just fine, shoots alongside a Springfield Loaded Trophy Match without a problem. It was supposed to of been ceracoated this past weekend but got put off a few days.
Some people put them down because its not one of the top names, or cuz its made in the Phillipines, but the truth is in the shootin.

After shooting my friends RIA I have no doubts about their quality.

Actually, mine would not even seat a mag when I first brought it home. I had to make the mag recess (where the front lip of the mag sets) .080 deeper to allow a mag to seat in properly. Was not an issue for me, as I easily fixed it. But some wouldve sent it back cuz 'it dont work'.
After that, no problems.
