$572.00

So I don't normally review products, but I felt compelled due to the high quality of this product. First of all, kudos to BGS for fast and safe shipping to my FFL dealer. Free shipping....can't beat that.

1. Fit & Finish:
Broke the gun down and cleaned all of the cosmoline (factory shipping lube) off of the gun. Oiled it up as well. After cleaning, the gun showed off it's nice clean lines and decent finish for the price. All of the parts fit together as they should, not too much rattle. After disassembly i noticed all of the parts were nice and smooth. No burrs or "hack jobs" that I could find.

2. Range report:
Right outta the box this thing is a tack driver. Loaded it up with 8 rounds per mag of winchester white box 230 grain ball ammo. It ripped up the 10 ring at 15 yards and hit where i pointed it every time. The sights (Heine straight 8 i believe) are very accurate and easy to acquire. POA was very natural. Mags accepted all 8 rounds like they should. Trigger is clean and crisp. Recoil is very slight and the gun is very well balanced. Recoil was more straight back, and had minimal muzzle rise/flip. I ended the session with a mag dump and fired every round in the mag as fast as possible, dropped the empty, reloaded another mag, dumped that one as well. Every shot hit paper(all easily within center mass) and had no failures. 16 shots in about 5 seconds

3. Overall experience:
With a sub-$600 price point, nice fit and finish, and supreme accuracy, why would anyone want to spend 4-5 hundred more on a *imber or *olt? This thing is a modern marvel at this price point.
