    I finally got to handle one of these yesterday at my lgs and to be honest it was as good or better than the Rock Island match grade, probably the best that Rock has produced to date. The wants 669.00 for it and after handling it that seems fair. Before I pull the trigger on it does anyone who has handled one have an opinion on the quality? 2011tacticalvzgrip-450x300_zps437322c6.png

    Seems a bit high. I've seen the .45ACP Tactical (non-rail version) for under $450, and the railed version for $550. I don't see were the VZ grips and fiber-optic front sight add $170 to the price. Maybe there's something I'm missing. Does the 9mm version command a premium?

    Regardless, that's a nice pistol. If I ever have some extra money burning a hole in my pocket, I be tempted to pick up a RIA.

    It's definitely a step above the regular tactical model, I would put it up there with the match grade. That being said I only found 3 on the web ranging from 600 to 670 and when you figure shipping and transfer costs I'm right back to 669 sounding like a fair deal. I was hoping I would here from someone who's shot one but it seems these are pretty rare.

    The price seems a bit high, but not outrageous.
    RIA makes good stuff with one of the best warranties in the industry, if I wanted a FS 9mm I'd be tempted.
