I wondered the same thing. Like you, I have not seen another Rock River with front strap dimensions like this one. I bought it essentially new-in-box a few months ago. From what I understand, this pistol was made and assembled by RRA (not sold in the white) circa 2000/2001. It may have been made with a lower cut at the request of the original owner. Perhaps others on the forum more knowledgeable than I can comment.

What I do know is that this gun functions flawlessly, has a stellar (DCM legal) trigger, and is very accurate. I really like the classic lines and the clean slide. I would love to find a Limited Match to go with it.

You're right, that is a little unusual. But I think I have seen a couple other Hardballers like that.

If you look at page 1 you'll see my EC's which have serial numbers within 50 of drdfletcher's gun, and mine are high cut. I ordered them around 2000, took delivery in 2001 IIRC. At any rate I have the high cut and they did not ask me if I wanted anything different.

May have been part of the standard hardballer package (traditional undercut), or may have been by request, I don't know. But my EC guns built at about the same time have the high cut.

There has got to be some more RRA 1911's out there. Anybody got an elite commando or full size they want to sell?

I agree. It is a pity they don't make 1911's anymore. They were well built guns. I guess there is more profit in turning out AR's, which they also do a pretty darn good job of. I snagged my 2 1911's used through Gander Mountain, after they stopped making them. Glad I had that opportunity.

Joe Chambers tuned this RRA Hardball gun for me, including:
- New Kart NM barrel and bushing
- Harrison Design retro ignition set with C&S TM strut and first-rate trigger job
- Greider solid medium trigger
- New front sight (impeccably fit)
- Hand checkered MSH with integral lanyard loop
- Marvel disco slot
- Blended rear of slide
- Carry bevel
- Re-finished blue (beautifully executed)
- Nitre blue small parts

I couldn't be happier with how it turned out. Mr. Chambers impressed me with his attention to detail and his professionalism. He was truly a pleasure to work with.
