I have the 5" version. Shot it accurately 'out of the box'. No quality issues. Very little muzzle flip with .357 158gr, 13.9gr Unique behind it.
I have read that the design had growing pains, but it is adult now.
Double action trigger pull is heavy, but feels no heavier than my Tanfoglio Witness. That female must have weak hands. The cocking lever action is also heavy, but when using a 'standard' 2 hand shooting grip, the pull is no problem for the off hand thumb. Single action trigger is clean and not heavy.
About the only thing I found disconcerting is that after the gun is cocked, the lever returns to the down position. It is near the center of your vision when the gun is 'presented' of course, so it takes a little getting used to.
The barrel and cylinder are the only massive parts of the gun that are steel; the frame and barrel shroud are aluminum alloy. Makes for a light gun; if it were a conventional revolver it would be 'lively' in the hand while shooting. I have a holster purchased from Chiappa US, and the gun carries easily; the 2" version ought to be easily concealable.
The firing mechanism has quite a few parts in it, but probably not a multiple of the parts in a 'standard' double/single action revolver. The engineering problems had to do with design, not number of parts.
Note: the gun comes with three moon-clips. I don't know why.
Purchased the gun from Bud's Gun shop, along with their extended 'lifetime' warranty.
