At less than three hundred, it was a good deal. I've put about three hundred fifty or so rounds through it, and I've found the main hiccups it has.

This was one of the first groups, with WWB. It was at about fifteen paces, I think around ten yards. Seeing this, I took it closer.

At seven paces, it tightened up considerably, especially after I rigged up the sandbags.

The main purpose of the trip was to see how it would really do. I looked it up before buying it, and noted the change in management a few years back. This is a recent production, and while the price is obvious, it looks to be able to become a good shooter with some work. The ramp needs work, as mentioned, the trigger, well, go figure. I think that's mostly the reason I was shooting low. The plunger tube came loose, and so it wasn't always holding the bolt back. That and the grip screws need some locktite. I don't know how much it'll cost to make it work, but I'm thinking that it'll be equal to or below the cost of a new one ready for competition. I don't think I'll be losing any money, and I might save a bit.

Also checked was this mag loader from HKS. The package said the seven rounder single stacks, and some eight-rounders. It worked for my flawlessly, and was much easier on the thumbs.

Made it much more fun to shoot, and at eleven bucks, I feel was well worth the money.
