Shipped well and shoots great. No problems and 300 rounds down range so far. It seems like this version or model is slightly updated compared to the ones I'm seeing in older youtube videos from when this first came out. The extractor seems updated and its mechanism doesn't remove from the rear of the gun as in the original model but instead comes out just like in the PT111. Aftermarket parts and mags are scarce. Stay away from the extended mags for now as they seem to have a lot of complaints on forums. Consider grip extensions for your mags as this doesn't have a lot of room for the pinky. Worth buying a laser because of the small and short sights. The LaserLyte Taurus 738 TCP, 709/740 SLIM laser works well for me.

Bud's Gun Shop offered this pistol at only 182.00, which was great. I just fired about 250 rounds of fmj on it out of the box. There were no hangups or hiccups. The single action trigger was really nice. Remember this gun is a bit on the snappy side, so if you have large hands you may want to get the pinky extension and add a padded wrap on it's slender grip. I was hoping for a little better accuracy, but, I am still going to give this gun a "5" for it's purpose, and that I was only at the range once with it and need to get the pinky ext. and grip wrap. In my experience Bud's staff has been very helpful in problem solving, even when you want to give up, they don't.

Very nice, slim handgun. Easy to handle and shoots well; has a nice trigger and is capable of a second strike on unfired primer. No issues with cycling ammo. Love the adjustable rear sight, loaded chamber indicator, manual safety, nice 3-dot sights, light weight. Price is very low for a striker fired polymer handgun that can be easily carried. Easy to disassemble the gun for cleaning. Simple to do business with Buds Gun Shop and they had the best price on this item. Drawback: only comes with a single magazine.

First time customer. Gun was delivered quick, and no damage was done to the package. Had it transferred to M and M Guns. Awesome transfer place. As for the firearm, everything but the recoil was to my liking. This little gun can pack a punch. Went through 100 rounds and not one jammed. I will be doing more business with Bud\'s in the future.

I love this pistol so far. I have put 250 rounds through it. Mostly Federal Premium FMJ, but also Winchester "white box" since I have heard online some people have had issues with it. Not 1 failure to feed, not one jam. No issues of this nature at all. I will say that it shoots a hair low for my liking. I have the rear adjustment at it maximum height and it bullseyes at 10 yards like that, giving no room for adjustment. I really love the feel of this in the hand. Recoil is very manageable considering it's size. I can fire off 150 rounds at a time easy and not be fatigued. I'm very pleased with this pistol. As for reports of it shooting VERY low, I did experience this at first. When I first received this, I cleaned it about as well as I would any other firearm after getting it home from the range. I then took it out and shot 100 rounds through it. It shot about 6 inches low at 10 yards. I was floored. I broke it down and gave it a more thorough cleaning. I also adjusted my grip a bit to apply more pressure with my off hand and released some with my main hand. Between the cleaning and adjustment in grip the accuracy is spot on. Some notes: This kit only contains 1 magazine. The magazine does not have any sort of external means to depress the spring like some other magazines have, and that spring is very rigid. You will need to plan on getting a speed loader, if you don't already have one.
