As I state in my other reviews, you will, #1, not beat Bud\'s pricing. If somehow you do, they will 9/10 price match it .
This firearm was a great buy. No one else could touch the price and Bud\'s was pretty fast on their shipping and as always, easy and painless.
I will start by addressing my issue with this buy, which was not by any means Bud\'s fault.
When my pistol arrived, I got home and noticed it had a few minor scratches on the slide, as well as a small dull machining mark on the slide where it had appeared the \"Brushed Chrome\" process was flawed. This may not seem like a big deal due to the fact it\'s a \"tool\", not a collector piece... However, I paid a hefty price for it, so I kind of expected nothing less than flawlessness out of the box.
I contacted Magnum Research in reference to the issue. They asked me to email some pictures and emailed me an overnight shipping label. I dropped it off at Fed Ex and 2 weeks later I had my gun back with a brand new slide and no issues or hassle about it.
I won\'t get into accuracy or anything like that. The gun is only as accurate and effective as your skills. I have no issues with it at all, it shoots true.
Reliability - Right out of the box, I have only shot Speer 350GR Gold Dots and the 300GR Hornandy XTP\'s. The gun eats it up without issue. The only issue I have experienced is the slide locking back while shooting due to me switching to thinner Vogue G10 grips and my thumb pushing up on the slide lock while firing.
Don\'t be scared of this gun. You see all the YouTube videos of people smacking themselves in the face and losing control of it. This is not at all reality. You\'re seeing someone hand a new shooter a gun they have no business handling because they want a \"cool\" YouTube video to show their friends they shot a \"Deagle\". The gas system and rolling bolt like an AR really makes for a VERY smooth action, anyone can shoot this gun. The trigger pull is very crisp and is probably around 4-5 pounds max.
I\'m thrilled with my purchase. the Brushed Chrome is the perfect finish for this gun. It\'s not gaudy like the gold and its not \"cheap\" or basic looking like the black. Magnum Research also boasts its the most durable of all their finishes.
Hope my review helps your decision!
