I have had this handgun since 2002 and have shot many rounds through it. Had problems at first and had to send it back to EAA in FL. Got it fixed and it has worked great since. The previous post talked about it jamming. The return spring is very stiff, so you must really strong arm the gun, so it will cycle properly. Everyone who shoots it jams it, becuase they hold it wimpy or loosely. When I hold it and really stiff arm it, the gun functions flawlessly. It is my concealed carry gun. I bought a fifteen round extended magazine from EAA, which is supper nice. Love the gun, but you need to learn how it shoots.
