Total 300 rounds with my 380 to date, not a glitch! Of 300 rounds one round failed to feed. Beats my Kimber silly! If I was lucky 6 of 7 rounds would feed.

I think Im in love. I bought this little gun for $220 and I couldnt be more pleased. Im more of a .45 person but this itty bitty .380 is my guily pleasure at the range. After 100 rounds of practice and some skill you will be turing heads at the range, literaly. It put round after round through center mass of my target paper that was pinned on a plywood board. Afterwards the plywood board had a hole you could fit a baseball through. Your fellow shooters will look at you as if youve prefomed some elaborate magic trick. It worked perfectly with almost all ammo I could get my hands on but it didnt seem to like blazer ammo. This is due to the almost strait line a bullet travels from the top of the magazine to the barrel, VERY reliable feeding even with the odd shaped COR-BON hollow points. The bluing finish wont come off even when lightly scrached. When fireing in double action you can hear the clicks of the pistol cocking the hammer ( this is normal in all double action pistols) but you absolutly can not feal it in the trigger, its smooth as can be. There is slight overtravel in single action but its still smooth all the way back. Its heavy for its size but thats a good thing, its not cheap metal zinc compound. The magazine release and the slide release are easy to reach too. And the saftey/ decocker flip up and down with a solid , defined click. Only a few downsides. The finger rest on the bottem of the magazine feels a bit fragile for my taste and the spare mags are $30 a piece! It can be a bit finikey when you function the slide manualy, the round that was in the chamber hesitates to come out ( if you own one you know what Im talking about). The case of you get what you pay for does not apply to this gun, you get so much more. Be cautious at the range, this little gun likes to LAUNCH expended brass further than any pistol ( or rifle ) Ive ever seen , so take the firing lane all the way to the right. E-mail me for questions, but dont offer to buy this gun from me because Im never giving this one up.

Ive shot 600 rounds with my 380 to date, 2 failed to feed. I like it so much I ordered a thunder mini 40 cal. They clean easy and fit tight, I only notice some small shiny spots appearing on inner parts. Which indicates close tolerances.
