I love my Rock Islands. People have had a bad one hear or there, so has Springfield and Kimber. I have had no issues with either of mine. This gives me reason to share some of the little ones shooting a RIA compact.

First the 13 year old.

Now, the 8 year old.

Get out there and shoot it. Only way you gonna tell. Upgrade the Mags to Wilson or Tripps. Happy shooting.

Put me down as one that has a RIA and is happy with it. The only problem that I have had with putting rounds on target with it has been the dope behind the dope. It has gone bang every time. I would buy another if a good deal came along, and I would say that $300 for near new is good.
