SOOTCH REVIEW: An In-Depth Look at the NEW RIA 5.0 RVS Recoil System

Robbie Wheaton and Sootch take an in-depth look at the new RIA 5.0 from Armscor/Rock Island Armory. This is very innovative and something we’ve never seen!

The RIA 5.0 is revolutionary in the world of sport shooting. The thing that really sets it apart from its competitors is Armscor’s patented RVS recoil system which maximizes barrel mass and linear movement, this in turn offers super smooth recoil. This new firearm from Armscor also comes with a buttery smooth trigger pull with no stacking for greater accuracy, combined with a barrel that sits deeper into the bore axis – keeping the muzzle flat underfire for better follow-up shots.
