    i have one too it shot fine until i overheated it and the barrel buldged and now it wont shoot at all but like you said it aint the best at tight groups none of the little autos are tight shooters i also have a berreta 21 a raven 25 and an amt backup 380 with any of them i can keep a mag full on a person sized target at 10 feet past that is beyond the range they are ment for but then they are to be last ditch hope that helps




    one shot one kill

    I had one and it was okay for about 500 rounds. The trigger wouldn't reset anymore so I traded it. I also have a Raven and it is a very accurate and dependable pistol. Unfortunately Phoenix Arms doesn't make the Raven anymore. Bummer!

    My wife has one...

    ...And it's very accurate with the 5" barrel. If you're using the 3" barrel, the 5" are available on eBay. I'm talking about shooting the tacks out of the target to drop it off the 7-yard fence...

    I have one with the 5" barrel kit. Pretty accurate with the longr tube and has been quite reliable so far. Not a bad trigger either. However, wear signs have become appearant in relatively few rounds and I don't expect it will shoot thousands of rounds without me having to fabricate new parts here and there. What can ya say? It's a $100 pistol.


    I think Pheonix would have a helluva thing going if they would use some better materials and manufacturing techniques and sell the gun for a little more. It is a nice size and has good ergonomics, and I personally like the exposed hammer. I would gladly pay $200 for an all-steel version.
