I have one and love it. I got mine used from a pawn shop but w/ very, very little use. I bought it, took it to the range first showing off to the fella behind the counter. He asked if he could cycle it a bit then offered to lube it up as it was pretty dirty. I purchased a box of 50 ball and ran the target out to 15 yards and proceeded to put them all in a softball sized group.
After chambering a round, dropping the mag and replacing a bullet back into the mag I had a problem going into full battery after firing. But that was the only problem I have ever had. 7 rounds will zip nicely down the pipe otherwise. So it is probably magazine related.
I am very happy w/ mine. I am going to replace the sights, and work on the trigger. I don't plan on doing any major work anytime soon.
Congrats on your AO :)
Spoon, What brand and type sights are you going to use. Is your's a PKSE?
I am looking at Heine sights. I want Tritium but may go for the white 3 dot due to the price difference.
Yes, Mine is the most basic Govt model w/ the plastic grips.
Please give us the range report when you fire it.

Nice pickup there sir.
I prefer the GI/milspecs myself over all others.

I like the looks of the GI model. I may need one myself!
