    Seems as though RIA is here to stay! I own 3 of their products and have no complaints. This one sure sounds like another winner for them. Their lower cost and reliability should help them gain market share against K and S! As usual another great test, well written and ahead of the gun rags!!!

    It is very nice that RIA is bringing new products to market. How about getting production up to speed to provide those products which we can't get a hold of like the compact and the tactical. Frankly if you can't get the product who cares how good it is.

    The Tactical should be in the shelves as you are reading this. There are several members here, who got theirs already.

    Great write up and the gun looks very appealing in all aspects. Thanks!

    They certainly WERE on the shelves, but the shelves are now empty. April seems to be the best guess when they'll be back.

    I liked the report. Slim did a good job on it - only complaint is that he mentioned the lack of overtravel adjustment, but didn't make it clear whether it would have benifitted from one or not. Not a big issue - just nit-picking.


    As for the gun - It looks more to my liking than the Tactical or the Spartan. If it had been sitting in the case next to my GI and their other offerings, I would have bought the FS Match, I think. Probably would then have swapped only the trigger and the FPS. Come to think of it - that's essentially all I did with the GI...

    Finally! Somebody giving a T&E gun a workout. Last time I read a gun rag (granted, it's been a while) most of the reviews put 50 rounds through it and called it a day.

    Also sounds like Ivan and Co. had the courage to send you the first one off the boat from the P.I. instead of cherry picking and hand tweaking one! Kudos to them.

    I will definitely be getting more Armscor products in the future. <cough>commandersizedtactical<cough>

    I really enjoyed reading this review. After seeing a couple of Rock Island 1911s at the San Antonio gun show and spending time in this forumn I have really wanted to scratch the itch and get my first 1911. After many nights catching up with posts in the forum I have decided on a RIA Tactical when they become available again. After reading this review I'm wondering if the FS Match might be a better choice. The gun would only be my CCW occasionally and otherwise be my target/range/house gun as well as possible IDPA competition.

    From what I can tell the differences between the FS Match and Tactical are:
    Hand fitted slide/frame
    Different finish
    Upgraded sights
    Change to FLGR design

    Is there anything I'm missing?

    Great forum. Thanks for the help.

    Jeff
