Note the slight gaps between the frame and crane.
An example of what one tester could do; the RIA had unexpected accuracy with Hornady ammo.
The RIA was equipped with a full underlug that houses the knurled ejector rod. Empties ejected well with a little help from gravity.
Tooling marks were evident in some places on the Rock Island handgun, though the satin nickel finish was smooth.
