K … so … I got a new gun. Please feel free to join in - sharing is caring.
She’s a Rock Island Armory Imports (yes, Imports is their new venture) VR60 plus 1 in brown/FDE/Khaki/new black. She’s a autoloading scattergun that mimics AR15/M4 platform controls. the “plus 1” is the 601AB is the aluminum foreend versus the alternative plastic forend. She looks a lot like:
RIA has already updated the forend from the one pictured and the pictured carry handle is different as well. More about them here: Armscor VR60 Plus 1 Product Page.
I’ve been itching for an excuse to try one of the See All Open Sights and the VR60 will be the first to try out the nightsight version that is inbound.
More info about the sight is here: See All Open Sight Product Page.
It is still unfired. I’m a scattergun dummy so I look forward to enjoying this learning curve. @ChrisNelson - this may be worth a looksee. I think that its release was overshadowed by the simultaneous release of Ruger’s PCC - if it lives up to my expectations, it will be a winner. I’m hoping so 'cause I definitely want a rifled barrel to run slugs with some degree of precision. I did read that RIA has rumored the release of a replacement .308 upper as well - that’d be awesome.
Early trigger feedback is starting me at a 9 lb. pull. Maybe it’s double action just because or something.
