I've been looking for an operator for long time and finally found this pistol at the local armory. They only had one in stock, and I had to have it. This is an outstanding weapon! It's light, very accurate, and comfortable to conceal and carry. Also, the night sights are very bright! The only thing I don't like is the dis-assembly. When field stripping, the weapon comes with a small plastic clip (take-down piece) that you snap to the guide rod between the inner spring plug and guide rod cap. Once you remove the slide, the recoil spring assembly can be removed with ease. Without this take-down piece, dis-assembly is still achievable, but with minor difficulty. Being ex-military, I like to be able to field strip weapons easily for repair and cleaning without the need for additional pieces that can be lost or misplaced easily. Overall, I love this weapon, and suggest that you buy this weapon immediately, that is, if you can find one.
