I picked one up last December before the frenzy started for $375.
I got it for a CCW gun as carrying a full size 1911 wasn't a choice.
I put it through its paces at the range, simgle shots, double and triple taps. Only had 2 failure to extracts during the first 400 rounds.
When I got home and cleaned it, I fount that the extractor hook was broken off so I replaced it with a Wilson Combat extractor and haven't had any problems since.
I too am looking for a replacement recoil spring set up and I found out that the recoil set up for the Colt Defender will work in it but I haven't been able to find one yet.
All in all its been a great little gun and I would buy one again.
