    Great gun for the price. Not sure if you paid more the gun would be better.

    Not sure, it sure does shoot great, it has digested 3 types of factory ammunition and 3 different handloads with equal aplomb. So far I am very impressed.

    Ran another 75 rounds through mine yesterday, mostly handloads with some Remington FMJ, the 180gr heavy clad concave base bullets from X-treme over Power Pistol are proving to be an excellent combination. Approaching the 500 round mark with zero malfunctions of any kind, and the accuracy is getting better and better as I become more accustomed to the sights.

    Agreed, I will likely be changing the front sight to something better suited for multiple uses, not just target sights.

    Nice looking piece, No offense, but I would put wood grips on it. Let us know how it operates.

    10mm Load development.jpg

    Still working on load development, but after 600 rounds, the only one stoppage, a failure to fully return to battery, one of my own loads, reasonably certain it was not the pistol, in over 300 rounds of factory, I have had zero stoppages of any kind. I actually like these black grips, they work well with the stouter loads.
