    I decided I was done working on a failed workstation for a while today, so I called my FFL to see if my pistol had arrived yet. They said it had just came in, so I departed from my office. I got there and did all the standard stuff for the transfer and went home. De-cocker works, safety works, mag release works. The pistol functions in both double and single action, score.

    I went to put it back in the box, and something was rattling around inside. Well I dumped the box over and a magazine came out! I had the one it came with, and the extra one I ordered, plus an additional one! They accidently threw in another magazine, sweet! :banger:

    I haven't shot this thing yet, although I did buy a box of .32 from a local sporting goods store ($19.99 :eek: ), but I plan on reloading my play rounds anyway. All in all though, I think if it shoots alright it will be a fun little pistol.

    I'm taking it to the range tomorrow, and I will have some pictures accompanying the details.

    I saw this link on another forum. Truth be told, it was $127 shipped, plus the $15 FFL transfer, but still less than $150 all said and done. I am hopeful it will operate without any problems. I did have to replace the firing pin return spring with one I had. The firing pin wouldn't return quite back as far as it needed to, but I think it will work now. Some time I might buy a replacement spring (if I can ever find one), but I have a feeling this fix will work for what I plan on using the pistol for.

    Seriously, what do you use an $89 pistol for?

    :rofl: No, just a cheap to reload centerfire pistol. It's not really expensive, or meaningful, a perfect candidate for say a tackle-box gun.

    Well, I started with a box of 50 rounds, and I have none now. The gun was so fun to shoot, and quite accurate. I had no stoppages, no FTF or FTE the whole time. I was hitting clays on the backstop at 15 yards with no problem. I think it was a great way to spend $140 all said and done.

    I'm going to get some pictures up shortly, but I am famished currently.

    The only injury of the day, I just looked down and my finger was like that.

    My target of .32 ACP and .22 LR. This was at about 7 yards. By the end of the day I was hitting clay pigeons on the backstop about 15 yards out with the .32.

    I am really impressed with how well this gun works. Not sure I will be trusting my life to a .32, but I think as a backup or a fun centerfire plinker, this is a good purchase.
