This is a very nice little gun. Inexpensive, and so far very reliable. I have only used CCI Standard Velocity ammo in it, and it shoots flawlessly and accurately to 25 feet (as far as I tried). I fired 200 rounds without a failure. Apparently using more powerful ammo can cause cracks in the frame, so no stingers etc. I did try a few cci quiets I had around, which were not powerful enough to cycle the action. That said, with the proper, manufacturer suggested ammo, the gun performs flawlessly.
I actually purchased this gun as a trainer for cheap practice and daily carry when my larger weapons were too difficult or uncomfortable. The weapon conceals nicely and is a good weight.
Now the gun is not perfect. The safeties actually make the firearm LESS SAFE. For instance, the slide cannot be racked while the manual safety on the bottom is engaged. However, the magazine cannot be removed unless that safety is on, and until the mag is replaced, you cannot disengage the safety. This is key. If you have been firing, or have a round in the chamber and a loaded magazine in the weapon, the ONLY way to empty the weapon fully is to rack the slide until the magazine is empty, dumping live ammunition all over the floor and causing an unsafe situation. One safer way is to insert an empty mag and rack the slide once, but I don't generally carry empty magazines on my person. This is a huge oversight in my book.
To get around these ridiculous "safety" features, there are non-damaging modifications one can do, but for now I simply carry the weapon with an empty chamber and safeties disengaged. Practice quickly racking the slide and the weapon can be brought to bear nearly as quickly as disengaging the safety in a 'cocked and locked' loadout.
Finally, another annoyance is the lack of a "lock back" feature while empty. This causes dryfires while practicing unless you count very carefully.
Overall I would highly recommend this gun for anyone looking for a concealable, inexpensive .22. It shoots well and serves the purpose of a trainer or plinker very well. With a few minor tweaks (mag safety removal and lock back) this gun would be worth 2-3 times the current price.
