    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 :)

    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.

    Nice pickup there sir.

    I prefer the GI/milspecs myself over all others.
