Well it took a year of waiting but I finally have one. Neat gun and I can't wait to try it out.

One problem. Only one magazine. Anyone know where you can buy additional magazines online? I would like to pick up another 5 of them as I hate to stop and load mags!

I think I used Brownell's in Canada when I needed a replacement mag for my FN 1910- you can Google them. First time they sent me a mag for a different gun- I heard this is common with them- but I returned it and they sent me the right one.

My second thought is you could try SoCalGun- they have a lot of mags and got me a rare OEM 15 rounder for a Browning BDM at a fair price.

Best regards,

Is that the 3/4 size version? If so, I'm bettin' mags will be scarce.

Yes. Neat gun. After I work on taxes this morning and it warms up I will take it shooting. The one thing I did not anticipate is that the smaller parts are somewhat flexible. Like the slide stop. When you put it in you need to be careful as it is thinner and will flex a bit shoving it in when compared to a full size gun.

Great workmanship, but the factory trigger is heavy. I need to break it in before I consider what to do with that aspect of it.
