RIA USA VRF14 12 gauge firearm
« on: December 20, 2022, 10:28:46 AM »
I think I found my next new firearm, the 12 gauge VRF14 from RIA-USA. A one-of-a-kind, detachable box mag-fed, pistol grip, 14” barrel, firearm. Mossberg can stick their Shock 'n' Saw where the sun doesn't shine. Sorry, Remington V3 TAC-13. My heart yearns for another now. And if it wasn't out of stock at Advanced Tactical, I could get it on sale for 80% less than the Remington.

It comes with sights but they wouldn't be much of use to me. I think I'd buy a Viridian HS1 Hand Stop Laser, Black with Green Laser, with a Two-Slot M-LOK to Picatinny Rail Adapter. Then cover the rest of the bottom slots with rail covers. And put a big tactical flashlight on top in place of sights since I would use it for home defense. Loaded with reduced recoil buckshot, like the 9-pellet 00 I just bought. And possibly a thumb stop on the left rail for consistent hand position.

But if I find out for sure vertical fore grips, not just horizontal chainsaw grips, are legal on "firearms" all that goes out the window. I never heard that you can't put one on, and I recall reading once that since they aren't pistols you CAN put a VFG on them. I already have an extra VFG that should work just fine on it. Then I would just put a plain laser and light on instead of the hand stop laser.

I didn't check my email yesterday so I didn't know these were back in stock. They're sold out again today. They make a +2 mag extension for the VR80 box mags that's supposed to work on this too. They're probably the same mags. So instead of 5, 9, and 19 round mags for it, you can have 7, 11, and 21 round mags, plus they make a 21 round drum. I think I would stick with 5 and 9 round mags, but add the +2 followers, which they say need to be fitted by a gunsmith. I'm not a gunsmith but I know my way around a hammer. ;D I can fix anything with the right size hammer. ::)

Between a 2 pound ball-peen hammer and rubber mallet, I fixed my furnace last night. I'm not kidding. It's been running good all day, for the first time in over a month. I haven't been kicking it in the right place lately to jiggle the bad relay that's probably 40-50 years old and out of production, and got both doors all bent out of shape. Since I hammered out the doors I can kick it in the right place without the top door falling off and landing on the floor with a clatter and clang.

I still don't have a VRF14, but I'm so sure I'm getting one that I started ordering mags and aftermarket parts and accessories for it. One package should be here Friday and another one Saturday. The Taylor Freelance +3 extended baseplate extends the 9-round VR80 shotgun magazine, which also fits the VRF14, by THREE rounds to 12+1, extends the 5-round mag by two rounds, creating a much-more-useful 7+1, and extends the 19-round mag by one round to get 20+1 capacity. If you live in a Low-Cap state, leave the 9-round mag's spring guide in place to limit the mag to 10+1. They also make a VR80 PRO Pad +0. It replaces the polymer factory basepad with durable aluminum CNC machined from bar stock.

I bought 4 red +3 mag extensions from Advanced Tactical because they were cheaper there than Taylor Freelance. I got Red because they don't have Black in stock and don't sell the Blue ones, and I don't want Anodized Gold or Raw Aluminum. I'll hit them with black spray paint if I ever want them to look more tactical. I don't know if the gun will have a 5 round or 9 round mag when I buy it. I'll take whatever I can get. Advanced Tactical only has 5 round and 19 round mags in stock, so I got a 5 and 2 19s. When I get the gun, I need to get an additional 5 round mag and a pair of 9 round mags, including whatever comes with it, so I'll have 2 of each. I have a pair of Black +0 basepads from Taylor Freelance on the way to put on the 19 round mags, and will put the 4 +3 mag extensions on the 5 round and 9 round mags, starting with my single 5 round mag. No plastic baseplates for me.

I got an email Thursday that 9 round mags were in stock and ordered 2, but still no gun. Palmetto State Armory said they had some a few days ago, but when I clicked the link, the page didn't exist. These guns seem to sell out in minutes, especially at Advanced Tactical where they're still on sale for half price. Theirs are $300 off and another place that was selling them had them on sale for $50 off. I think they were out of stock too but can't remember that far back.
