    100 pack of targets, Power Custom checkering guide, and a 25 LPI checkering file. Looks like I have my work cut out for me! 33DA3CB5-1676-4307-B253-58E0AE445BAA.jpeg

    RIA gov 45
    Colt Competition 45
    DW Valkyrie 45
    Nighthawk GRP 10mm

    All are NIB pistols..

    My first impressions are - the Colt is tied for last place with the RIA: the RIA arguably has a better fit, tighter lockup but the trigger is a bag of rocks and the finish is obviously basic. The Colt has nicer materials and a better trigger, but rattles and has very poor slide to frame fit - its really unacceptable for a "competition" gun: i can literally move the slide vertically up and down while in battery.

    The Valkyrie is very nice and lightweight for an Officer, very good finish and excellent trigger- I am impressed with it very much for what it is. However it is still relatively unkempt in certain ways in the details (mostly finish), It is obviously a great value for $1k and I see why they are so well regarded!

    The Nighthawk GRP takes the cake in all areas, but is still a slightly lesser gun compared to my Guncrafters in fit and finish, such as the texture, controls and overall smoothness of the slide. but we're splitting hairs really and i only mention it as they share similar price points. The only negative I have of Guncrafters is the safety is firm until you shoot it a few times.

    Holy cow! You got all those in the mail today?! I’m jealous! Seriously though, very nice group there.

    I have a 9mm RIA tactical that, after I threw a new Wilson thumb safety on, gave it a trigger job and flat trigger is a great shooter!

    I really would love to own a Valkyrie but I will probably never have the chance as long as I’m in California. Enjoy those heaters sir!

    I have a 10mm RIA tac also - decent gun for the price but this Gov actually fits a lot better.

    The Valkerie is very nice and I'd highly recommend it.

    I can't say enough how disappointing the Colt is. I might see if I can sell it.

    Sure is a nice looking DW Valkyrie just saying. I’m not partial and don’t miss it at all.

    Walked into a LGS and bought 8lbs of Sport Pistol powder that came in for me.
    Then
    Looked a pistol case and he had gotten in a bunch of gun from an estate. bought a lnib Sig 226 nitron for about 2/3rds of what would be the normal price. Wife of estate, said she knew the deceased would be OK selling these guns cause he got them in the last year, so he wasn't attached to them.
    I waiting for the guns he was attached too.
    Pictures to follow I'll be picking it up today!

    Duly noted, but not likely. Although I do have some Amboyna burl grips being made for it as we speak. Pics to follow...
