I think the price asked is fair
Any thoughts on this gun ? Is this worth the $429 price ?
For not very much more money, you could have a CZ-75B, in a similar, but more modern type pistol. I love the 1911 platform in .45ACP, and the RIA is a decent gun, but the CZ-75 and all of its variants, is a superb 9mm, can be used as double or single action, holds up to 16 rounds, and shoots 2" groups at 25 yards, right out of the box.
I gave $460 for mine, about 2-3 years ago. They are a little higher now, but they are probably worth it.
The similarities are that they are roughly the same size, have exposed hammers, and both can be carried cocked and locked. The 'more modern' design I was referring to includes the DA trigger, which enables you to carry a round in the chamber, with the hammer down on it...meaning you do not have to carry cocked and locked if you happen not to like that carry mode. The long trigger pull is an advantage, in this case, because it lets you fire in double-action mode. If you don't like it, simply carry it cocked and locked, exactly as you would properly carry a 1911 style pistol, and you are in single action mode - no different than with a 1911.
Wonder if that means that they don't have them any more ?
If that were the case, looks like they might just say that, instead of just completely deleting any reference to that particular pistol.
Does this tactical model of the 9mm RIA come standard with fully adjustable rear sights ?
For about 60.00 less you can get the Bersa Thunder High Capacity Pro in 9mm with 17 in the mag and 1 in the pipe for 18 total. Life time warranty to original owner.
Would love to shoot a CZ but the range I go to only sells them, CZs are not on the rental side of the store.
wpshooter, did you find the 9mm at Centerfire on Fri.?
wpshooter did you ever find the RIA 9mm? Sarco Inc has them now.
When you get the RIA replace the recoil & FP springs with Wolff springs, replace FP for something of better quality, then shot the snot out of the gun. That are accurate and will do their part if you do your part, I've had three and only problem is no 10 mm offered. If a 10 mm or 10mm short (aka 40 cal) I would have two, a full sized and officer models.
