Under a cloud of "what the hell am I doing" I sold the first one of these I bought right here on this forum. This was after I had the full size RO Elite too LOL. Almost immediately I regretted it. It has a great set of features for a production gun-Black T finish, love the sights (put the green tube in the front), only gun I like thin grips on haha. When I found this one offered on another forum I knew I had to make it mine.
The only change I've made is to put Talon grip tape on the front strap; works great for me. This pistol virtually disappears under a t-shirt in the VMII and during cooler months it rides perfectly in my Palmetto Leather owb.
We all know the first rule is to have a gun with you, this one makes that very easy.
I bought a RO Champion 9mm a year or so ago with the express purpose of turning it into my carry gun.
Put sights I wanted on it
Pachmeyer grip so I didn't have to checker the front strap and refinish the gun.
did some trigger work to get the weight where I wanted it. (Still has factory MIM in it)
I'm real happy with mine too. 800.00 gun . So I'm a little more invested than you LOL
I agree it's a great EDC gun for the low cost involved
