I got this gun for pocket carry, for those occasions when I can't carry my full-size 1911. This gun is very well made, with good fit and finish. No machining marks or flaws in the finish. The safety has a very positive engagement. The trigger is heavy, but has a very clean break.
For something as small and light as this gun, recoil is not bad, and is very controllable. It is certainly snappy, however.
I have yet to experience any malfunctions with mine. So far I have fed it FMJ, truncated cones, and Gold dot hollow points. It's like feeding candy to a small child.
Small, light, handy and reliable. Add to this the fact that this is one GORGEOUS little gun, and it's win-win all around!
