For $125, it'd be at my house already.

Of course, at that price, I'd look for a problem or two...like a weak magazine spring...or the ejector wire needs adjustment...but heck, $10 fix or less

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!
