    Yep, I have one and it is a really nice gun. Mine has just about 800 rounds through it and I have only had one failure to feed, but I feel it was ammo related as all the other rounds fed fine. This was with Winchester 100 round Value Pack purchased at Wal-Mart. I find that this gun is an excellent buy for the money. Mine was $479.00 +DROS and tax. Mine features: Skeletonized hammer, lowered and flared ejection port, flared magazine well, extended beaver tail grip safety. All this comes standard on the gun. Mine is accurate too, despite the smallish "military" style sights. I would say that mine will group 3-4 inches sand bag rested at 25 yards. Mine will group at 2" at 15 yards if I do my part. Best value in a gun I have ever found.

    What did you use to black out the roll mark?

    The new guns have the white roll mark. Those from a year ago on back didn't have the white.

    Limbkiller's compact


    Limbkiller, did your RIA come that awesome straight trigger or did you do that? RIA seems to be for real. I have seen their prices creep up as word is really starting to get around about their quality.

    Looking to do the same on my SIG ultra. Love the straight trigger

    That is a Wilson flat trigger. Love flat triggers on CCW weapons. No matter where my finger hits the trigger it is the same as a long curved trigger.
