Just recently grabbed up one of the RIA tac guns. This one being the standard not having the adjustable sights, front slide serrations, and G10 grips. Which i didn't need bc i knew I was goiing to completely give this thing a makeover. One of my absolute favorites has been the SA TRP Operator. Owned a few of them and was about to start hunting for another when i came across this. Now had I thought I would be getting anything remotely close to a TRP for $530, I would have been in for a real world bitch slap to the face..but given the brands relatively reliable, inexpensive, bang for your buck reputation maybe all it needed was a Wilson's reverse guide rod plug and I'd have a Perfect 10 only in .45...lol. anyway here's where i got her to so far... First.. not a fan of the Parkerized finish. Has the look and feel of a new motorcycle chain. I wanted a blued look... I really like and use cerakote all the time soooo, I got creative. Mixing some H-127 with a little E-100 blackout (I honestly don't remember how much of either) and going real heavy I ended up with something i'm very happy with. But before this I gave the mainspring and back of the frame a little more hand friendly rounded touch. Made some room for my fat fingers with a little trigger guard undercut. Took that 3 squared trigger and gave it my modern take on the sirca 80's national match treatment. And gave here a much better front end. Taking her to the range tonight and will update with how she runs..
