VIDEO: The NEW Rock Island Armory STK100 Striker Fired Handgun

    In this episode of TFBTV, James Reeves meets with John of RIA to discuss the new Rock Island Armory STK100 striker-fired, aluminum-framed handgun. This gun is, essentially, an aluminum-framed Glock clone that has about 90% parts compatibility with the Glock 3rd gen handguns. However, the STK100 has a number of features that aren’t featured on other striker-fired guns in the same price point including optics cuts, lightening cuts in the slide, an aluminum frame, and more.

    According to Rock Island Armory’s press release:

    Striker-fired pistol fans, rejoice. The STK100 boasts an aluminum grip that adds just enough weight to reduce felt recoil while still being comfortable to carry all day. This 9MM 17-round gem has a textured grip angled like a 1911 grip to give you greater control. With a patent-pending frame designed for durability, It has all the advantages of metal for the price of a polymer.
