Those are a good version of their semi-automatic pistols. The only trouble I ever remember from them was some complaints of the recoil being a little harsh. Outside of that, they are a decent pistol in most cases. I would, just to be safe, check the slide action, both upper and lower, for cracks BEFORE you buy it. Strip down the gun, and look very closely at the rails to make sure that you don't see any tiny cracks radiating up and down. Both the old 10 mm and the newer .40 S&W rounds have been known to cause cracks on the slides on occasions. If you don't see any cracks, then go for it if you want it and can work a deal.
