    I've recently seen these things pop up, selling for $199 retail. And for an extra $179 you can get a stock that holds extra magazines. I'm just wondering how sturdy and reliable these things are. They look very customizable and easy to shoot which is great because I can teach my fiance to shoot with them and have fun with them. But their website list a spring to by for the magazines for feeding and kits for extra parts and it just feels like they are expecting it to break after 50 rounds. If any of you own it or have tested them please tell me your opinions and if you would spend money on them. Thank you.

    All the reviews I have seen are bad.

    They look pretty neat, but dont waste your money . I know first hand they are jamomatics . Got the chance to play around with one and it would not cycle any brand of ammo reliably . If you want a good reliable .22lr handgun buy a Ruger SR-22

    $199 retail+$179 for a mod on a questionable gun.

    You could buy a good known .22 for $378.

    Ruger Mk II or Mk III pistol, or a Ruger 10-22 for a rifle.

    Zip guns sure have changed from the 40s-50s belly guns.

    ^^^^^^^^^
    This is the answer to your question

    you know, if they where going to make it ugly at least they could have made it reliable.
    And you get to do NFA paperwork if you want the goodies..yeah!:rolleyes:
