  1. Do you check with a sizing gauge? or use the Lee "u"die?.
  2. What dot do you see on 99% of the open pistols????.... C-MORE's.... Great field of view, ez change dot modules, excellent reputation..... With minimal skill you can make a slide ride from an old C-More Serendipity...
  3. 93 notch (Mustang?, my son has a 89 Police Interceptor w/heavy engine mods))... See my post on mag mods... Pretty simple & low cost. Update.....Maybe a simple fix for the 19 rd. mags?....... I did remove the bolt hold open from both 19 rd. mags, they were much better. I did lightly sanded/polished the follower.I found that on both mags the followers became stuck in the upper part of the mags at the mid point of the 4 slots. i found about .006 difference in the internal measurements before the "slots" and after the "slots"...........Just enough for the follower to drag a bit in the slotted area, NOT before and Not after. (Bottom part of the mag was fine). I looked for a means to slightly expand this area, nothing seemed to be just right?.... HF to the rescue!!!... The 4 pry bar set ($11.99) worked. Insert one of the longer bars into an empty mag in the slotted area and twist. You can see the metal move but just a few .000's. I tried several spots in the slotted area... Now the follower drops in from the bottom and goes completely to the top of the mag... A little crude but it was all i could find at the time Quote Edit

  5. Good info, I have the moly spray on hand... I'll try the spray on one and the BHO removal on the other.... The 5 & 9 rounders work 100%. Time to get a longer bag?...
  6. New RIA 80 owner.... Not new to mag fed shotguns. This gun looks to be well thought out compared to others...Even cycled some 1 oz. x 7 1/2 loads (5 rd mags).. I've been reading all the other 40+ posts on the shotgun including the 19 rd mag info. I did the usual removal of any plastic flash from the follower and removed any sharp edges, reversed the springs, etc. After some initial jamming, the bolt hold open lever edge has been slightly rounded thinking that was the issue?....... Looking at the inside of the 19 rd. mag body, it's easy too see that the rear transition grove from one mag body to the other leaves room for the bolt hold open lever to "catch" and tilt the follower rendering the mag to a "jammed" condition..... I think the bolt hold open could be useful at times BUT the spring inside the bolt hold open is to stiff forcing the follower to tilt???? ... looks like I could either remove the spring & arm (rendering the bolt hold open feature gone) and/or/ try realigning the 2 mag sections as suggested?. Long ago, I had a Tooth & Nail 1919 28 rounder that never functioned 100% from day one even after a trip back to them, yet some are lucky enough to have functional big sticks? ( Yes, I used the proper ammo back then, AA's 1350 fps)...When the follower transitions / gets "stuck" the shells are free to rattle around in the mags. SO, we all know that when "trouble" rears it's head your shooting in a match it seems?.. So what works best?.. It's the follower being stuck/tilted it's not the ammo. The bolt hold open sure could help a reload under match conditions I think?...Opinions please....
  7. Can you post a picture of the mod ?. Thanks.
  8. Anyone tried the 20 rd. drum yet..... I actually saw one work n a Saiga once. Had a 1919, never did get the 23 rounder to function from day one......
  9. I've owned nearly all the various mag feed shotguns through the years, none were consistent runner's, especially with the 19/23 round mags and I've tried all the different shells out there. I've read the many reviews on the RIA and bit, got one on the way from KYGunCo. i have read all the info I could find, both here and on the :net: Did someone finally get it right????, (Hope so). is the trigger going to be the biggest issue?.( I 've used the JP spring kits before and they were a low buck improvement)....... looks like Tooth&Nail and others are working on a trigger? but I can't see 4 1/2#'s as a winer?.....
  10. HuMMMM... I just installed what was described as an AR 10 buffer tube, (1" longer overall) on a recent AR build. I'm 5'7" and I like the longer OAL...
  11. 7/1/19...RIA VR 80, Thought I'd post, KYgun had 20 in stock today, make that 19... Greg Cote has or had 9 and 19 round mags -2 of each.
  12. We like e'm.... All of the above mods done, get the 6 moa dot whatever brand of dot you get..... I like my Vortex Venom
  13. Good info. makes you wonder?.... "They" must have known there was a potential problem with the jig design as it was later corrected. Smells like buyer beware. Looks like "They" need a lesson in marketing??.. Very poor!!!. Hardly customer satisfaction oriented.
