I sold 2 of the RIA 10mms that I bought for $25 over cost. Probably won't see much of a better deal than that on a new gun. Actually I forgot I sold the first RIA 10 for cost because I had decided to shoot it. But the experience was bad enough to help me decide I didn't want to own one, let alone the 2 that I had. I don't recommend them to my customers.

Wow, that bad? Maybe I should just save my nickels for a used Razorback.

You'd be better off. I have a 10mm Razorback and it's an incredible gun.

The RIA 10 has a lot of problems going on right now. There are plenty of threads about it on other boards.

All things considered, that's really not too bad for something built completely to your specs. I don't envy you the next six months however.

Honestly, I didn't really think so either. Especially considering the 10mm chambering. There's nothing remotely close to what I ordered being offered from any factory at this point.

The 6mo. will fly by,and when it arrives you won't be disappointed.I had Fusion make me a Traditional Hunter in 10mm and it is truly a joy to look at,as well as shoot. Bob's folks build a fine piece,dependable and accurate.I've been through at least 800 rounds without a hiccup of ant kind!

That's great. I was impressed that Bob called me himself just to make sure he understood what I was wanting.
