RIA 22 mag --- got it



Log in to see fewer ads
Finally arrived. Shot the first 150 rounds through it. 100 Speer Gold Dot and 50 Hornady V-Max. Two failures to feed. Both with Speer Gold Dot, both on the last round. Could be me, ammo, or just need more break in. Muzzle flash like an old time camera flash bulb going off in your face. I swear I felt the concussion and heat in the shooting booth. The shooter at the other end of the range put on two sets of ear protection. Picked up some CCI, Aguila, Winchester Varmint, and Armscor to try next. Fun factor on a scale of 1 to 10 = 15.

Now all I need are a few more magazines.

Congrats,

Mine runs great.

I reported on it here (along with my source for extra mags):

I checked with them when I got the pistol. They are out of stock and don't know when they'll get more. Maybe 4 weeks --- MAYBE

It was on Gunbroker. Got it for about eighty dollars less than MSRP. The store had it at a fixed price so I jumped on it.

I wish I could find one ordered mine 2 months ago from my LGS and am waiting. I love the idea and everything I have heard has been positive.

It sounds like more muzzle blast than I expected. I shoot 22mag pretty fairly often in single six and not noticed anything that outstanding for an out door setting. That is a 5.5 barrel. I maybe just numb to the whole experience?

I suppose a long slide or threaded barrel with a gizmo could help with that? My gizmo experience has generally been more shooter felt negatives. They do make a kind of reverse compensator that blows the offensive flash & noise forward. The name escapes me right now. Is it linear comp?

Oh, I forgot, good to hear these are finally out.

UPDATE

The more I shot it, the more it malfunctioned. 10% to 18% depending on the ammo brand. Armscor ammo was the worst. Only half as bad as the Kel Tek I had but still not good. Sent back to Armscor. Got it back in less than 3 weeks. Work order stated they replaced parts but didn't state which ones. Shot another 350 rounds through it. STILL MALFUNCTIONING!! I am waiting for a reply from Armscor. MAy get rid of it soon.

That;s a shame, I hope Armscor has an answer for you, because mine continues to work quite well.

I now have about 250 rounds thru it (CCI and Fiocchi) with zero failures to feed, fire or eject. The slide stop works as it should now (a minor fix I did myself), and all six magazines I have work as well.

Best of luck with yours.

Ordered mine 2 months ago at my local LGS and just got a call today that it came in. Will test it out this weekend and put a report up. Hope it functions as well as most have said it will.

update to the update

Shipped it back to Armscor today. They said they would replace it if the problems couldn't be corrected. I informed them that I can usually get through the first magazine load without a problem. It is the sequential loadings when the problems start. Maybe something gets heated up and causes the trouble. We'll find out later.

I had a 5.5" Single Six in the early '70s. Shot some magnums during the day and noticed a hint of a flash. Took it out one night and got a fireball about 2 feet in diameter and maybe 5 feet long, it's huge! You can't see it during the day.

I absolutely love my RIA 1911, got it on sale for $499 about 10 days ago. Fantastic pistol, fit and finish are perfect. Tight slide. Couldn't be happier, especially at that price!
But mine's chambered in 10mm.

How are the sights as to POA vs. POI? That has been my only concern that they made a target/hunting .22 Magnum with no way to zero the gun easily.

Thanks...Bob

Have been having so much functioning problems that I haven't tried any conclusive tests. But so far a six o'clock hold will generally center the groups at fifty feet. I don't know if it will be the same after I get it back. That's on an N.R.A. fifty foot target.
