    I wanted the tactical model at first, but settled yesterday for the G.I. model.
    I just got done stripping it and cleanning it. she slides nice.
    I went down to my local gun store and he had one in stock.
    so tomorrow I'll treat myself for a day at the range.

    I just finished reforming and polishing the feed ramp on the RIA so it will function better, especially with my new 200gr. HP loads, which are a little shorter. I must say that the factory forming on the feed ramp isn't the best, and there was a significant gap leading to the chamber. That's all fixed now. I think I did a splendid job!

    I will try to get close ups of the chamber, but as it is, my camera wouldn't focus in that close.

    Yes, I have a blued compensator on it, too. I picked that up from Works great. Oh, and I made that grip etching myself...I like it.
