    No but I have been curious about them since they seem to be priced right.

    Yes. We have had a few at the shop and kept one as a range rental. Very Glock-like with some Styer mixed in and what feels like a little lighter trigger. Very good shooter. The quick sights seem odd at first look but they are just that....quick sights. Hold it at low ready and throw it up on target and bam....it's right there. Hard to explain, you just have to try it yourself.

    Over all, a fine gun IMO. I would not trade a Glock for one but I would take one over an XD.

    Yeah we got a couple of them too. They feel good but I never bothered shooting one. Guess I should give it a try some day.

    I've seen two magazine reviews, both were really positive. One article was really pleased with the sights, like slabsides said. Accurate and reliable were the other terms I remember. Of course those mag reviews only shoot a few hundred rounds at most, that doesn't convince me- prefer 5-600 before I rely on one.

    I would say our range rental has easily exceeded 1000 rds with no issues. It's getting a good workout. I'll keep an eye on it and report issues if any.
