UTAH-MADE ROCK ISLAND RIA 5.0 SPORTING PISTOL

With a lot of interesting engineering behind it, the new Rock Island Armory pistol isn't a 1911 from the Philippines but rather something quite different from here in the U.S.

The new RIA 5.0 in 9mm gives off some veryArchon Type B, Dan Wesson DWX, and Laugo Alien vibes right off the bat. A hammer-fired design with a two-piece modular grip frame, it uses a rectangular 4.91-inch barrel inside a slide that rides the same sort of internal rails used on the CZ-75, which gives it an exceptionally low bore axis. It uses a 17+1 capacity flush-fitting magazine, which we bet is probably the same as the one used by the RIA STK-100.
