well my RIA will go in for some surgery tomorrow, the garbage adjustable rear sight keeps coming loose so I will have those replace with some trijicon sights for old eyes.
I'm thinking the ones with the open horseshoe rear sight like I have on my EDC mod2 .45.
I'll also have the 8.4 pound trigger pull addressed I would like to get that down to 3-4 pounds.


oddly enough I don't have a picture of said gun :cry:

What style sight, the Novak style? They're not really Novak sights, the dovetails are just cut the same dimensions. Mine loosened up but a thread locker on the screw helped.

8.4 pounds? Mine goes off if you look at it cross eyed.

So, do your 10mm's sling brass to the next county? Sure makes it hard to reload.

Don't know about the 10 mm, but my 45 sure does.

I have a Citadel that is like that, you don't want to breathe on it too hard. Citadel is the same gun as the RIA, at least it is made by the same people.

Turn around when you shoot, the brass will land inland. 😁

This is so frustrating about the 10mm! The M610 solved the frustration for me.
OOH, all my revolvers are smith and Wesson except he python. I would be torn between the 6.5" barrel and the 4" barrel, since my 10 is the long slide with 6" barrel. Darn, darn, darn, now I want another revolver...thanks man!

I'm an enabler.
I went with the 4" and I couldn't be more pleased.
