I have had one for over two years. Have shot 1000's of rounds through it (about 300-400 rounds a week). Had to replace a couple of springs recently (inexpensive and easy to do). I do not use the mag cylinder. Bought it for cheap practice for CAS. It is what it is, an inexpensive .22 revolver. I believe the company has fixed some of the earlier problems they had with it (they used to have a plastic ejection rod). So if you buy one, buy new or not too old. For the price I would recommend one.

I have had mine for a long time. Probably at least 10 years. Actually I bet 15 years. I have thousands of rounds through it. Shoots great. Only problem I have ever had was a screw that worked loose.

No need of a 22 mag for squirrel. A cheap used bolt action 22lr would be much better

So you are planning to take 50+ yard shots at squirrels with a cheap revolver?

Not at all. Thats why i wanted some first hand accounts of how accurate it is. I think might just search around for a used ruger or taurus
