I bought mine for $280. I got the blued one, and the bluing is so thin it has started to rub off. Get parkerized ! The first time I went to the range I brought some win. 115gr fmj and it would not fire more then 3 rounds without FTE double feed. I put my 147gr HP golden sabors in and no problem...(no limp wrist here ) I took it home and polished the feed ramp and took a file to the slide rails to remove all the machine marks. It seems to be a lot better but it still not 100% with cheap light weight ammo. no problem for me cuz I don't carry without a good defense ammo but makes me concerned.
