I have put a couple of thousand rounds through this gun without any failures of any kind. I finally got the grip right, the right backstrap, fixed the "left and low", fixed the flinching and I am starting to feel real comfy with this gun. It is completely stock and I can not decide whether to do the trigger thing or not. I am going to order its brother in 45ACP. Here's a target from this morning's shoot. Ten rounds at 7 yards, standing two handed.
