I've had mine (17HMR, Black Widow) for several years and have shot several of the smaller 22 mag/22 lr models. The firearms are built to swiss-watch standards, with tight tolerances and lots of meat in the small parts. The company offers great CS, with no questions asked repairs. I prefer the black widow grip rather than the birds-head grips on the smaller frame models. As far as accuracy, I can place 5/5 in a paper plate at 25 yards anytime I care to. I eyeballing the new break-top model, but am waiting till the prices come down a little before I order one.
