Anyone have experience with these??

If i actually found a nice used one, it would be a small game and target gun.

It was on my list of interesting guns until i got to handle one in person. Cheap construction didnt even begin to describe it. I strongly suggest trying to inspect one in person before you place an order sight unseen.

I do know that the last 5 or so rounds are nearly impossible to put in the magazine

Figured with a 30 round mag it would be pain in the ass to load

I will defiantly handle one before i make a decision.

When you say cheap. Do you mean it just feels like my little bros toy guns?

I've shot one. If you can find one without paying an inflated price, it's a cool little gun.

Trigger isn't great, major muzzle flash and quite a brass slinger, and the feathery weight of the frame is part of what makes it feel so cheap. It weighs next to nothing. It's not a precise target pistol IMO, but a pretty nifty plinker.

The claimed 30rd capacity is silly. That led to many of the function issues, with cases becoming dented and deformed when it was loaded to max capacity. Load up 20-25rds and they seem to do just fine.

Yes. The materials its made of on the sample i got to handle seemed to me to be a step below the quality on your average super soaker
