Received this gun in three days from the ordering date. Great, fast shipping. I've purchased four firearms from Buds and have had great shipping from them.
The gun arrived in great shape as expected. Magazines had a tight lock-up. You kinda' had to 'slam them home' with our palm to get them to lock. Nothing like my friends MKII. I guess it has to do with the polymer frame of the 22/45 (the mags have an odd floorplate), and the magazine disconnect.
I disassembled the pistol (whoever says this is hard obviously isn't too smart) in 5 minutes, then cleaned it out and oiled it up (the factory oil is a bit too thick in my opinion. I took it to the range today and shot CCI Mini-Mags, CCI Standard Targed (SV), and Remington Targed (SV), and Federal bulk. I had one FTF and it was due to the ammo - this was out of 190 rounds. The best accuracy was with the Remington Targets with a 1.5" five-shot group @50' using a two-hand unsupported grip. This was nice to see. This is with one click of rear sight adjustment to bring the group to the right.
I had a Browning Buckmark and while I really liked that gun, I LOVE this one.
To sum it up - the only issue I have with this gun is the stupid magazine safety, as it inhibits lockup of the magazine, makes disassembly/reassembly harder, and causes the magazine not to drop free (you have to pull it out). I have a hammer bushing on order for a MKII to get rid of this 'feature'. For this, I give it 4 stars.
