This was the very first pistol I owned. Purchased as a present for me 22 years ago so I could shoot 25 yard NRA bullseye matches. At the local range, people loved to show off their exotic .22 pistols and weekly targets for the competition. When I got ole slab sides, their faces drooped. I can put 20 rounds inside of a pupil from a rest when sighting it in! This is, without a doubt, the very best "out of the box" pistol of any make or caliber in terms of accuracy and reliability. As the above review said, any type of ammo is no problem. I get the best results from bulk PMC Scoremaster and bulk Federal. Yes, it is harder to clean, especially compared to the MK IV version of it (my next .22 purchase), but after 22 successful years with it, I would recommend it to anyone. The gun is more accurate than me and I am pretty salty.
