[051421490]
$456.00

I have nearly 1000 rounds through this pistol without much issue. One complain is that I had to wait sooooo long for these to be available. Waited at least 3 months. Buds emailed as soon as it was in stock so I didn't hesitate. Good thing as they were sold out again in 3 days...

After 6-months:
I really enjoy shooting this pistol. The lack of recoil, the fit or the grip. Really super.

I unfortunately must report that ammo choice has been more of an issue than I'd hoped. Started with Remington golden bullets and aside from beings dirty round, the gun functioned OK. Then I bought plated Winchester LR rounds, the 550 bulk pack boxes. They shoot reliably and accurate enough, but about 1 in 10 fail to eject completely. So I then tried federal 525 bulk pack. Still had some FTE issues. CCI mini-mags even had a few FTE sometimes.

Maybe it is the gun, I've no basis for comparison. Only Buckmark I've ever shot. Perhaps it is me always opting for the cheapest ammo available... One the other hand my wife's neos has no issue with anything I bought.

The only other complaint is the front sight. Every time I take it out of its case, the front sight has flurry white aluminum oxide powdering it. I can't see any breaks in the anodizing but there must be some exposed bare aluminum there for the oxide to grow. I wipe it all down with a little rem oil before storing it... I just wipe it off with my tshirt and you'd never know, though. Only part of the gun to do that. And it does not sit long without use either. Guess that is just the east Texas humidity for you.

If after all that you are not sure how I feel about my purchase, here it is:
I would buy one again if my wife were to leave me and take it with her.
