I just got this model and am impressed with the gun minus the grip screws and sights trouble. I took it to a FFL friend the other day and he immediately bad mouthed the gun for being from Turkey. He challenged me to a shoot out betting his Kimber against my Girsan. I told him I wouldn't put mine up against his junk Of course Kimbers are not junk but I felt he deserved it. He quickly went out back and shot 5 shots at a 3" target with his kimber and hit it once at 30yds. I offered him mine to try and he smirked then quickly fired 2 rds hitting the target both times Needless to say he's been grumpy since the other day.
