Does anyone have any experience with the RIA M5? I've heard their 1911 clones are pretty nice, but haven't heard one word about their shotguns.

D R..... I haven't heard a word about them either. It is certain they are foreign made clones and as such, could be very much hit or miss. Certainly the fit and finish may be crude. Functionally? I have a Chinese (turns out we think they are made by Norinco) H&R Pardner clone of an 870. Finish-wise it is a bit rough. Functionally it is every bit as good as any 870.

The RI could be a useful, inexpensive alternative. I guess someone will have to buy one to find out.

I have their 1911A1 CS and love it. It's a solid little pistol and if their M5 shotgun is comparable in quality, fit, finish and operation then I will need to get one. I am torn between the 410 Mossberg and a 20 ga for self defense; either so my wife can shoot it if necessary.
