I have the exact same pistol. It shoots great and have never had a problem. I've put about 500 rounds through it. The only thing I don't like about it are the sights. As you know it has Novak night sights. They are very visible in the dark, however, and maybe it's just my old eyes, I can not see the sights in daylight. At the range I have a very hard time getting a sight picture. I have meprolights on my Kimber and they are visible night and day. I'm thinking about changing them to plain white dots. Would love to hear how you find they look to you after the weekend.
