The Rock Island Armory (RIA) AL3.1 is a stainless steel frame/black rubber grip 6-round .357 Magnum caliber revolver. In fact, it’s essentially the same gun as the RIA AL3.0 except that has a blued finish paired with the same black rubber grip.

The AL3.1’s fairly compact dimensions make it great for concealed carry. The 2” long barrel has a 1 to 17.9” RH twist and even a barrel shroud to help safeguard against accidental burns. The barrel is contained within a frame plus package combination that is 6.75” long, 4.09” tall and 1.50” wide across the fluted cylinder. Unloaded weight is a neat 1.5 pounds, which jumps to 1.72 pounds fully loaded.

Sighting is done via a fixed long front ramp sight and a fixed gutter rear sight.

Single-action trigger pull is 4 to 6.5 pounds while double-action pull rises to 11.5 to 13 pounds.

The revolver has safety and design features to guarantee safety whether there are impurities in the cylinder, etc. The gun also has a drop safety.

The trigger is curved and sits in an egg-shaped trigger guard.

Finally, the grip is rubber with a deep undercut, three finger recesses and little mounds on either side, all of which combine for a comfortable, good grip.

Rock Island Armory is a division of Armscor, which is short for Arms Corporation of the Philippines. It was founded there in 1905 by two Englishmen as Squires Bingham & Company. The name changed to Armscor in the 1980s.

That same decade, Armscor set up operations in the United States and acquired Rock Island Armory, famous for making M1911 semi-automatic pistols. It set up its American headquarters at Pahrump, Nevada and later started making ammunition in Stevensville, Montana. And now, Armscor is the world’s largest producer of M1911 types. You might expect this gun to be made in the USA or in the Philippines, but the Rock Island Armory AL3.1 is actually Made in the Czech Republic.

The company making these guns is Alfa Proj. The firm formed in 1993 and has been making arms ever since. Alfra Proj is in Brno, Czech Republic and is ISO-9001 certified thanks to its outstanding quality. Thus the Rock Island Armory AL9.0 is Made in the Czech Republic.
