VERY Nice. I get looks from my buds with my red dot on my 5.5" Target model. but they change their view after they put a few rounds thru it.

Guntalk is a great resource for these pistols.
Mods you may want to consider include:
Remove magazine safety
Replace hammer bushing with MkII bushing
Replace trigger and sear with VQ parts.

Rimfire central is another get spot to look for mods. I did the hammer and bushing mods and now the mags drop free. I removed the springs and the tab for the LCI, but left the LCI in to keep stuff from going inside. I want to do the other mods, but the gun runs great like it is. I removed the wooden grips and got the Houge grips. Made a world of differentce, but does not look as nice. I put the Burris fastfire 2 on it as well. Nice and quick target aquire.

My photo doesn't show it very well, but I replaced the LCI with a well-fitted stainless steel filler piece. A guy named Bruce on Rimfire Central makes them...just look for the LCI Filler thread. I also removed the magazine safety and replaced it with a Clark bushing. That allows the mag ejections do work much better. The mag safety was really a bad idea. The pistol is a load of fun...very accurate...;)
