Tell us about shooting this gun:
This gun was everything I wanted in accuracy and minimal recoil.
How does it fit your hand, how do you like the sights, how difficult is it to rack the slide, how would you describe the trigger pull, and how would you describe the recoil?
This gun was difficult for my small hands to rack. It had frequent stovepipes and other jams, regardless of ammo. Both recoil and trigger were excellent.
How reliable is it?
Very unreliable for my tiny, thin hands. Often a jam per magazine (6) was expected.
Any problems with any type of ammunition?
All ammo worked the same for people with larger hands. No ammo worked better for me.
Does this gun have any specific ammunition requirements? If so, please explain:
None that I found.
What do you dislike about shooting this gun, if anything?
Frequent jams made this gun unreliable for my personal carry.
Was it easy to take down and clean?
Very easy to take down, clean and put back together.
Would you recommend this gun?
For someone considering this gun, what would you tell them?
Be SURE your entire hand fills the space between you and the slide. The ergonomic style of grip made it impossible for my thin, small hands to properly fill and support this 380.
Anything else you would like to share about the gun?
Men had absolutely no issue with this gun. Several people checked my grip, wrists and technique and found nothing obvious that would cause the jams other than how my small hands were not able to fully grip this pistol. I’ve since purchased another pistol (Sig P238) which is a perfect fit for my tiny hands. The Sig has had zero jams with me as the operator.
