Before I buy a new gun I am usually pretty methodical about reading everything i can and trying them out. I have been looking at the Rami pistols with much interest lately. The Polymer ones have been out long enough for people to have put them through their paces so I would like to hear from anyone that has owned, shot or carried both of them. How do they compare and which one would you recommend? Unfortunately I cannot find anyone around here that has one for rent let alone both of them. I have held the alloy version at a local shop and really had a hard time handing it back....

I have read a few posts on other forums but most seem to be from fanboys that tout their own gun because it's what they bought. I would love some objective opinions.

Thanks in advance.... Jim

I have the poly version of the Rami. It has been nothing but reliable for me, I guess I have shot over 1000 rds without a problem. The reason I got the poly over the alloy was because I have small hands and it seemed to me a little thinner at the grip. If that is not a problem for you I would go with the alloy because you can change out the grips and I think also that the Kadet Kit 22lr conversion will fit on it. It won't on the poly, I tried. The poly is about 1 oz lighter if I am not mistaken. I truely believe that in whatever configuration you chose you will not be disappointed. By the way I had the curved trigger replaced with the 85 combat version and lightened up by Matt Mink and it is a dream to shoot.

Thanks Gilfo. The only issues I have seen with any of the Poly Ramis is Failures to feed on some of the 40 guns. I would go with 9mm anyway so that's not an issue. What holster are you using and do you find it thin enough for IWB carry?

I've been wondering the same thing.
