This gun shoots like a dream!! Easy trigger action. smooth firing. full sized frame

Very little felt recoil. very manageable.

Fits like a glove! Safety is easily reachable. Slide pull is easy. trigger pull is very light.

Love the fiber optic sights. you can replace the iron sights with a red dot by replacing the rear sight with a piccatiny rail to mount an optic.

How reliable is it?

Very reliable. very fun to plink!

Any problems with any type of ammunition?

This gun loves CCI. has a bit of trouble with any ammo less than 1050fps – won’t eject the cartridge.
have shot about 500 rounds through and would say “failure to eject” is about 15%

Was it easy to take down and clean?

Takedown requires unscrewing the takedown screw, removing the slide, and unscrewing the barrel. It is a bit more involved, since it requires an Allen wrench. but is is very easy.
