Where To Buy RIA Ultra FS 40 S&W
The Filipinos have long been close allies of the U.S., and have a respectable handgun heritage. Many a WWII Japanese soldier’s last sight on this earth was a Filipino Guerrilla aiming at a 1911 at him. With ambidextrous wide paddles, the thumb safety is positive and disengages easily. The grip safety is an upswept, high ride beavertail configuration that allows the operator to get closer to the bore axis, thus minimizing felt recoil- while also greatly reducing the risk of getting slide bite. Not only does this tandem reduce lock time for improved performance, but the trigger pull itself is butter smooth.
The gun features combat style, low profile, snag-free sights, and when properly lined up. They are extremely accurate and get on target relatively well. While some argue its degree of effectiveness is negligible and just for show. Many shooters nevertheless consider the gun’s full-length guide a necessity for improving reliability and accuracy.
