This pistol is very reliable. I took it to the range right after receiving it and had zero stoppages in 500 rounds of various ammo through it. I love the Crimson Trace grips as they really help these old eyes of mine with no short focus ability after cataract surgery.
This was my first purchase from Bud's and I wish I had the good experience that others had - but I didn't. I ordered on Sunday and it took until Friday of the following week for it to arrive at the dealer with two-day shipping - I tracked it. As a matter of fact a second gun ordered 3 days later arrived one day prior to this one. There were no return e-mails or calls prior to the gun finally shipping. I assume my experience was an exception to their customer service.
The gun is great and I highly recommend it. It sits low in the hand and has lower apparent recoil than my Beretta 92FS. The sights are easy to pick up.
Also the current price of 629 is $103 less than what I paid - I should have waited - and will now - for the 40 S&W version to drop before ordering it.
