    I believe there was a post here the other day about a G41(M) bought through RIAC that had issues and ultimately returned. That was the first time I had heard of that.

    No I'm thinking he bought a rifle hoping to flip it for a bunch of money. He buys a lot of rifles from Big auction houses.

    Common Wealth bought this Dung Pile believing the BS that RIA permeated about said item and was thinking he could make a Bundle on Resale. Buyer should have done some investigating before hand . Serves him right , Greed is an Evil Companion .

    As far as RIA return/return policy , Never Expect or hope they will give You a refund if a MISTAKE has been made . Again best advise doYour homework about the item your planning to bid on . RIA is in the Business to SELL the DO NOT CARE if its 100% Original or NOT .

    I have 1 RIA bought K98. I took a chance knowing what the risks were. It is a duffle cut bringback where they obviously lost the front end of the cut. The front piece of wood doesn't exactly match in color and the front band is obviously bogus. Still a great Erma rifle and I can't complain too much but still.

    I agree. before this post, i would have believed if it was in a book it was vetted and known.
    This is another learning for me on how challenging this hobby can be....

    fortunately, for me, my pockets are nowhere near that deep

    Well the good side is that will keep you from making high dollar mistakes. Some of the older 'vetted' stuff turned out to be not so original as more eyes got on it.
