Mine is a shooter and eats anything put in it.

Yep, I have one and it is a really nice gun. Mine has just about 800 rounds through it and I have only had one failure to feed, but I feel it was ammo related as all the other rounds fed fine. This was with Winchester 100 round Value Pack purchased at Wal-Mart. I find that this gun is an excellent buy for the money. Mine was $479.00 +DROS and tax. Mine features: Skeletonized hammer, lowered and flared ejection port, flared magazine well, extended beaver tail grip safety. All this comes standard on the gun. Mine is accurate too, despite the smallish "military" style sights. I would say that mine will group 3-4 inches sand bag rested at 25 yards. Mine will group at 2" at 15 yards if I do my part. Best value in a gun I have ever found.
