Are you right handed or left handed?


What features does this gun have that appealed to you?

It was the only one small enough to fit my hands.

Tell us about shooting this gun:

It shoots fairly smooth unless really cheap ammo is used. I have not had a failure myself but this was purchased as a set and the other has had issues with ammo being stuck.

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?

Honestly I hate this gun. I have very small hands and even with the smallest grips, still too big. I am right handed and have to shoot left to hold the gum correctly and safely. Sights on mine are dead on, the other one wasn’t. I don’t have trouble racking the slide and once I have taken it apart to clean a few times its getting easier to operate the pins to remove the pieces to clean. Trigger pull is great and the recoil isn’t bad at all.

How reliable is it?

It’s decent, don’t use cheap ammo.

Any problems with any type of ammunition?

Cheap ammo gets stuck occasionally.

What do you dislike about shooting this gun, if anything?

Too big for my hand, otherwise a champ.

Was it easy to take down and clean?

I do okay with the cleaning once I got it taken apart once or twice. It’s kind of a bugger to slide back and push the pin out but I am better now.

Would you recommend this gun?


For someone considering this gun, what would you tell them?

It’s a good gun. Just make sure you are extremely comfortable with it before purchasing or try before you buy. I also listed my price at about $1000. I purchase my gun at the heart of the gun shortage about 3-4 years ago so I know the pricing was skewed. It may be in the $700-800 range now.
