    If so, how do you like it? Fit and finish? Accuracy?

    I'm slightly obsessed with this gun and would like to hear what others think of it. Especially if you own or have fired one.

    I don't have the 9mm but I do have the .40 S&W version. So far (about 500 rounds) the functioning has been fine. I can easily hit fist sized targets at ranges of 15 to 25 yards with it. I've been shooting mostly 165 & 180 gr FMJ, but as it's a revolver reliability with various nose configuations is a non-issue.

    The fit and finish is fine. It's not a Colt Royal Blue or a glossy nickle like a nice old S&W, but the matte finish on the aluminum frame and steel barrel & cylinder is even and smooth.

    Trigger pull was a little gritty at first but is smoothing in nicely.

    Hope that helps you out a little.

    Doc

    Thanks Doc. One of my LGS's has a .38 in stock. The trigger pull is horriffic. So damn heavy! Feels like an easy 15 pounds. Other than that, it's not a bad looking little gun. I am hoping to see one of the 9's in the flesh soon.
