One of the items brought up during the test of the Rock Island Armory was how well the gun would hold up under a round count that, quite frankly, is unusually for owners of this brand to put their guns through. To find out, I field stripped the RIA and checked several critical areas for signs of frame battering, barrel rollover, or any other critical issues.
As I expected, there were none. The gun is still in excellent mechanical condition, and I fully expect it to run just fine this weekend when I shoot my first USPSA match in nearly 2 years.
