Tell us about shooting this gun.
My favorite! Absolutely reliable. I’ve run hundreds of rounds through this gun of all different brands and types and it doesn’t flinch. The recoil is extremely manageable. Racking the slide and locking it open is easy even with my arthritic hands. The sights were accurate right out of the box. This gun gives me confidence that it’s going to be there when I need it.
How would you describe the recoil, is it manageable?
Very, very manageable.
How does it fit your hand, are the controls of this gun easy to use? (Safeties,slide pull, magazine release, trigger pull, etc.)
I have small, arthritic hands and it is very comfortable for me. The trigger pull is light but not scary light ;).
Do you like the sights on this gun?
I’ve had no issues sighting in. The white sights can get lost on a white target, but the more I practice with it, the less I rely on the white dots ;).
How reliable is it?
Extremely. As mentioned, I’ve run hundreds if not into the thousands of rounds now through it and it’s hung up maybe twice? And I have no doubt that those were due to my grip…likely getting tired…
Any problems with any type of ammunition?
Was it easy to take down and clean?
Yes, very easy.
Is there anything you dislike about shooting this gun?
For someone considering this gun, what would you tell them?
Do it! If you need a reliable, accurate, versatile, easy-to-use handgun, this is the one. I find it just a bit on the large side for concealed carry, but for home defense and target it’s absolutely perfect.
Would you recommend this gun? If no, do you have a preferred gun?
I absolutely recommend this gun. It’s my favorite:).
