I'd say if you're gonna shoot a few hundred rounds and only have to reload the magazine half as often, that would be more fun. Your mileage may vary.
Took it to the outdoor range and tried her out at 30'
The lrn CCI std velocity had trouble cycling the slide (always ejected spent round but didn't give this blowback enough "umph" to put the next one in the chamber... Hence a few failure to feed)
The high velocity ammo (CI) copper plated did just fine... No hiccups
Groups of 10 you see marked were while I held the gun (supported) on top of a wooden box
The trigger is a little heavy at 6.0lbs
Pleased so far... Hoping trigger will smooth out
A fun fun shooter!
Not exactly a bullseye shooter, is it? I suppose its niche is practice gun for a 1911 carry. But, that's one load. I always try a multitude of loads when I get a new .22. Some loads are lucky to hit paper in a given gun while others are tack drivers. .22s are odd.
