ria 22tcm
 
just ordered a new rock island 22tcm should be here on friday. anyone out there with one have any advice for me Randy

Yea. The tcm round is terrible ..if it fires. Put the included 9mm barrel in and be on your way.

I'm surprised they are still offering that caliber. I vividly remember back when they first announced it was coming out. All the fanboys were blowing up the forums about how it was going to be a revolutionary round that was going to be wildly popular. I took a lot of flak for predicting it was going to go over like a lead balloon.

I am actually looking into getting one of these myself, why the hate on the 22 tcm? Probably not going to be the primary round fired (9mm) but it is an interesting concept/option.

If it did not come with the 9mm barrel I would not have gotten one. centerfire systems has the ammo for 19.99 a box of 50 with $10 shipping for up to 9 boxes 10 boxes is higher shipping

See that's my thought as well, a double stack 9mm 1911 is worth the money on its own. The 22 tcm is just a bonus for a hot little round for what I have read about it anyway. How much did the gun run you and where did you order it? If you don't mind me asking.

Also @ Olympus and tacticalfun, what have you heard about the 22 tcm that is bad that I haven't heard?

tacticalfun 09-20-2012 12:26 AM

I had one. The tcm rounds wont cycle. The barrel is loose. Wont hit the broadside of the moon. But.. the 9mm barrel was a dream.

Did you give RIA a chance to fix it? I hve found they will go above and beyond to make you happy. Randy

The 22TCM is the only discouraging word I've heard about RIA's.
