This gun could have killed my father. We bought this gun about 8 months ago new from a gun shop. It worked fine and then after a few trips to the range, the takedown lever siezed, making the gun unable to field strip it. The lasers also went out after around 50 rounds. The firearm was the concealed weapon my father carried all the time. So today we went to the range and the first shot, the gun broke. The cap on the laser seperated and caused the slide to lock up. The gun was totally unusable. Had my father had to of used this against a bad guy, he most likely would have been killed/robbed/you get the idea. So we sent it back so smith and wesson for $30 to fix it. What a piece of crap... The shops gunsmith was able to get the lever to work and the gun was stripped. Never again... THIS IS WHY YOU GO TO THE RANGE OFTEN AND TEST YOJR GUNS.
