I've heard a lot of mixed reviews on them. Mainly feeding issues. Hopefully an owner will come along and state their opinion.

Yea I've heard a few mixed reviews with the early models. Dunno about the newer ones. I'm mostly used to single action .45. But think it might be a fun lil gun.

I've had one for a year. I love it. Like most 22s you'll get some mis fires but Besides that, great gun.

my son has one. we shot it alot the last time we got together and it worked flawless. I think he bought it used so I don't know if it is a newer or older one, only that his shot good

Nice, thanks for the info. Did you guys use any certain brand of high grade ammo like cci mini mags? Or just bulk cheap ammo and still worked fine?

i have one of the first models to come out.

it will not cycle to pick up the next round outta the magazine with bulk federal or winchester rounds. it only likes HV rounds, it shoots remington golden bullets well, and likes cci mini-mags, and stingers. the cci's have a heavy wax coating on them that the lil pistol does not like tho.........especially in the heat of the summer.

i've tried both springs, and it still will not cycle correctly with the non-HV rounds.

shoots really well, but don't drop it on it's sight.........they are a plastic-type material. mine fell outta my truck, and bent the rear dovetail. rear sight has an adjustment screw to dial it in. comes with front sight, and 2 replaceable all, tall, medium, and short.

Most of the time I use CCI mini mags but I also use cheap bulk ammo as well.

We shot almost all Remington bulk golden bullets. He has many mags(around 8) and we used them all (they all worked fine). It was more accurate than I expected. If they all shot like his, they would be great guns. I have heard many bad reviews for them but his is excellent.

its shoots good, but mine is very picky on ammo. it loves CCI mini mags. had big trouble with federal bulk, and winchester. its fun to shoot though.
