This is making me seriously consider doing the same to my ProMatch Ultra 10mm! Very nice!

I like that slide cut and how it ends with the radius right before the front sight.  Simple but it adds a lot of character.

I have a 2011, but this is making me want to buy one of the 6 inch RAI and build one of those. It could be a backup, that’s what I’ll tell my wife. Really nice gun.

So, my question today is: Has anyone put a red dot on their RIA? If so,  please do tell.

I did it. Vortex red dot, Docter mount, Hayes install. It’s awesome.

Not my pistol but it looks like a guncraft long flat trigger.

All parts and labor came from Hayes Custom Guns. I have xxl hands and the trigger is almost long enough. If I could, I would add another 1/2 inch and move the trigger guard further forward.

My RIA TAC 40 arrives back today from Hayes Customs. I didn't go all out with the HCG package, I just went with the reliability & Race Ready packages. When it arrives I will post some pics and my first impressions.

Which one of the 9mm HC come with ramped barrels. I don't want to buy one and then have to have a ramped barrel cut in.

I believe all the 9mm's do. You could also reach out to Armscor if you want 100% validation.

I won a auction on a Pro 40. I think I may add a 9mm topend.  Now I have to try and remember what Kydex holster will work with the huge dust cover.

Red Hill Tactical is the one I’m using.

Rich at Canyon Creek Customs does great trigger guard work and he can move the trigger guard forward. Tell Rich, Tommy Roupe told you to call. Rich done all of my square trigger guards and it makes a big difference with large hands. I fall into the same category. Robbie Leatham has all of his trigger guards done that way. The pistol rest and points better for me with the square trigger guard. I wish Robbie could chime in on it.

Just purchased a RIA HC frame that I'm building with a 6" Fusion complete slide. I'm not going to compete with the pistol, but wanted a long slide in CA and this was the easiest way to make one.

My frame did not come with a Magwell. I like the look of the stock magwell and don't want to go through the headaches of worrying about really expensive magazines to work with something like the Hayes magwell. I have the "tail bone" style frame as depicted on the Hayes website.

I wanted to see if anyone has a stock magwell they are willing to part with?

I also want to look at upgrading the trigger. I don't have any experience with 2011's. What options do I have? 43a78a8025ad2d8a746210f7a8e3da76.jpg
