I'm a VIP member, I ordered this gun on a Tuesday, it arrived on Friday! (On the other side of the country!) I bought my Shark after seeing a similar one at a LGS. I did a lot of internet research before ordering.
I got the ported Shark FC in desert tan color. At first I thought the color might have been a mistake but the gun doesn't seem to show dirt or oil. Or maybe the ammo we were shooting was just extra clean. The gun itself is flawless. Beautiful workmanship. I don't see any machine marks, although I did see some on the gun I saw in the store. Frankly I think it's a better gun than the CZ original that it's based upon.
We headed from the gun store straight to the hills. We shot a box of Armscor FMJ and a box of flat nose Remington (of some type) that we found in the back of the ammo locker, which is getting mighty empty these days. :(
No issues with either ammo. We didn't have any targets with us so we used targets of opportunity and were both consistently shooting twigs off a bush at 50 feet right out of the box! Slow fire or rapid fire all were great. The ramp appears well finished. At first I thought it had been polished, but upon close inspection there are still some small ridges (TINY ones). Obviously smooth enough to deal with the flat nose junk we were shooting. At some point I'll polish the ramp but it's not necessary for good function.
I personally don't notice a big difference in recoil with the ported barrel, but I am used to .44 mag, so a 9mm is a pop gun compared. Next time we'll take a Beretta 92 to compare.
This is one sweet gun! I think they are going to catch on. And with Bud's guaranty you can't go wrong.
PS - Just don't order the Chrome model - until I get mine!
