I bought this little fella about a year ago. My FFL (a retired LEO) said it was a popular little ankle gun and would work well if treated properly... His advice: feed it well, DON'T "GUNSMITH" IT(!), don't overclean it and don't try to cycle the slide. He said he had seen these things work perfectly dry, filthy and full of pocket lint. He was right. I bought a cheap mag; it wouldn't feed well. I bought a factory mag; it worked perfectly. I clean and oiled it religiously; it jammed, stovepiped and FTE'd. Usually on the first or second mag. Of course it did! A tiny bit of oil in the chamber will, sooner or later, bake into glue... usually sooner. Bone dry, it will fire reliably all day long. It likes mini-mags or some of the better high-velocity bulk ammo. It doesn't like hollow points or cheap, soft lead bullets. Stingers are NOT recommended and are very hard on the gun. A dab of grease on the slide, tiny drop of oil here and there, wipe the bore and chamber bone dry and you won't have a problem. I still bring the "mouse gun" out for family day at the range. Nobody can hit anything with it but, it's fun to shoot. I can put 8 or 9 out of 10 shots inside the rings on a 50' bullseye target at 25'. It's not a target gun. If I had listened to my FFL to begin with.... it works well if treated properly. The gun works fine. The shooter needs his ears cleaned. I have to give it a solid 4 stars.

Rating: 5 of 5 Stars! [5 of 5 Stars!]
