Yah i heard the same thing about it after i bought it. But some research on the internet ive found out that most of the problems with it can be resolved with a little work done at home with the spring set up in the frame and trigger. And it was only $360 so it will be my ''dummy gun'' so i can mess around with it and get it to run better. Ive got a Gp 100 and my oldlady has a glock so its not for SD its a range gun. Honestly if the gun was mine i would have got a mark III and never regreted it. And around me a brand new ruger markIII is right around $300 out the door.
