Great gun for the price! I would have been OK with it for double the price.
Now, I'm not a competitive shooter and don't own any $1,000+ handguns, but I have shot quite a bit and own several in the $400-$800 range.
My copy of this gun has good fit and finish, and I like the way it fits my hand and points.
But the key questions (like for any gun): is it reliable and can you hit with it? I've put a couple of boxes of ammo through it and had zero failure-to-feeds / failure-to-fire, so yes, seems to work fine. Trigger is a tad longer and rougher than my best guns, but there's a predictable stop after the creep and a crisp, fairly light let-off after that, so it's very usable. The longer sight radius of the Rangemaster version is super helpful for target work. I can hit the point of aim better with this gun than with most of my others.
The overall size, which makes it much easier to be accurate, makes it a bit harder to conceal but it's not bad. However, unless you plan to practice enough to become an expert shot (and maybe even then), for defensive use you probably want a bigger caliber.
The multiple safety setup takes some learning to get used to. But hey, if somebody gets your gun away from you they'll probably never figure out how to shoot you with it ;)
Overall, I really like this gun and I'm impressed with the value for the money.
