Anyone have input on the Ronin.Reviews seem perty sparse.Seems like they don't even exist.,Let's here about them.
Gotcha; I meant fundamentally though -- meaning, the OP wants reviews of a new Springer for which there isn't much feedback yet (good write-up from you, by they way -- thank you), and I'm guessing the Ronin is fundamentally identical to the Loaded series, and so the OP already has a good idea of what the Ronin's all about.No ambi-safety, which is not my preference anyway.
Nice looking gun. Wish they'd just go ahead and checker the front strap, would make all the difference in the world.Just brought one home today. Haven’t shot it yet.
Slide to frame fit is typical of Springer which I am generally pleased with. Doesn’t rattle like a Colt (which doesn’t bother me in Colts really). Locks up good. Thumb safety snicks on/off very positively, not squishy like new Colts. Barrel to bushing fit seems very good for a production gun below a grand.
I’m not real crazy about the “Ronin” rollmark to be honest, but these things appear to be a bargain for the fit and finish and I can live with that. Blueing on the slide looks great, especially for the money. Ships with one mag, and none of the usual holster, mag pouch, and hard case that my Range Officer came with a few years ago, which is probably how they are pricing this thing as aggressively as they are.
Trigger is gritty on take up and has a smidge of creep, but just a wee bit. This will get some attention, and I expected this.
Ejector is drilled and pinned in unlike my RO I bought 4-5 years ago, which never has given me a minute’s trouble. I am thinking about changing out the ignition components for a set of EGW parts, 10-8 u-notch rear sight, S&A magwell, VZ Operator grips, Wilson Bulletproof low lever thumb safety, EGW extended mag catch, and making this my IDPA ESP match blaster.

That one thing right there would check all my boxes. But honestly, I’ll put Dawson gray skateboard tape on the front strap at this price point like my other stainless Springer and it will be every bit as functional as a match blaster.Nice looking gun. Wish they'd just go ahead and checker the front strap, would make all the difference in the world.
