Rock Island Armory Tactical .45 (NIB): Who has them left in stock?


March 18, 2009, 03:34 AM
i am trying to figure out if any online retailers or gun shops with internet sales have any RIA Tactical pistols in .45 ACP in stock. It can be a 4" or a 5" i dont mind which. Lots of places have them listed in back order but dont have them in stock.

i have seen a few NIB RIA Tacticals on Gunbroker but the prices are always inflated by about $200 :banghead:

does anyone know of a good place to buy RIA pistols these days? The market is hungry for these guns and i know there is a bundle of them somewhere waiting to be sold. happy st patricks day to everyone here at THR.

I have been watching as well as I am hoping to order one next month. Sarco seems to be the only consistent place to get them. Plus they advertise the lowest price and reasonable shipping. $15.

yea sarco seems pretty legit. great prices. im gonna pick up one of their tacticals once they get them in. i talked to a sales rep yesterday and they said theyve been expecting a new shipment since friday. it sounds like they should get them in any day now.

I agree with Buzmech. Bellshire is great. Bought from them also.

My tactical is in the mail as we speak from Bellshire Hardware. Great people. This is my second tactical. I setup a saved search on gunbroker and checked daily till he listed 5 of them.

Start at the source:

Or email the head honcho there,he'll set you up-

Ivan is the Mod on the RIA forum at,he's also the "Big Guy" at Armscorp US,or whatever they're called...

I was looking for a specific model,and he not only answered me personally,he put the gun on hold for me until my payment arrived...Best customer service I have ever seen...

I met Ivan at the shot show last year. He was very anxious to please. I didn't end up making a purchase, but got the impression their service is excellent.

Again I have to recommend

They have them in stock.

yea i see that arms n ammo has them in stock but their prices are about $60 more then other places ive seen such as sarco inc. sarco is advertising the tactical for $394 and the standard 5" for $329. great deals. i just have to wait till they get their shipment.

Kirkcdl: did you deal with iven directly for your purchase? who did you actually pay? how much did you pay if you dont mind me asking?

thanks for the info guys. im gonna shoot ivan an email and see if i can get hooked up.
