It is sort of a rip off copy of the 1911. The best thing about it is the .30tok round will go through some body armor.

It goes right through an 80's vintage flak vest. The same vest that stopped .38, 9mm, .357 & 45acp. That was from actual testing done by me and my bro.

Very cool to shoot. Actually more of an improvement over the 190r browning design. I know saying a browning design can be improved is sacreligious. Ammo is cheaper than 22 magnum. Mine always stays close at hand.

It's a great starter/intermediate pistol and will probably outlast you.

They don't cost an arm and a leg...

I say go for it.

Great gun with a powerful round. I got rid of mine only because the surplus ammo supply will EVENTUALLY dry up, rendering the gun useless.

Not sure how old you are but since you have a youth tag i will assume under 18 witch would mean you have a few years to wait and I'm sure by then there will a 100 more pistols to choose from.

It most certainly is a problem. By breaking the law you are not helping reform gun laws if anything you would be making them worse.

I could, but I've recently consolidated calibers and guns to those most commonly available: 22lr, 9mm, .45 auto, .223, 7.62x39, 7.62x51, & 12 gauge.

Standard issue holster is bulky but it carries an extra mag. Mag capacity is limited. Sights are not adjustable. Report is crazy loud. Accessories and parts can be tricky to come by. Feels similar to a 1911 in the hand.

IMO, it's a great truck/trunk gun, throw-around gun, and plinking gun; but a poor choice for a SHTF gun, carry gun, or target gun. It would work if you're wanting a sidearm that defeats basic body armor.

lol,you consolidated to all the calibers that ''commonly'' disappear at the first hint of a crisis. if your goal was availability for resupply it's the more obscure ammunition that lingers long after the common is gone.
as an example: in over ten years of reliance on 54r as a primary caliber i have never experienced a shortage in amunition,while others over the years have been bought out from panic buying i was always able to resupply by the case.

just my .02 newbie Zak

Maybe he is about to turn 18. In some states you can leagally own a pistol even if you are not 21.


You can be gifted a pistol or do a private sale in SC to a non-criminal who is 18 or up.
