I'm pretty fond of mine. After about a thousand rounds it's a little loose in the slide to frame fit but is still the most accurate .40 I own. The trigger would probably be better without the magazine safety but it's manageable. The factory grips on mine didn't have a great fit and kind of slid around but I replaced them with Hogues. It's a keeper.

Bronc, I've worked on a bunch of them over the years, anmd though I'm not a big fan of the 40 round, it's one of the best guns adapted for it's use I feel. They are very reliable (especially with factory mags), and hold up well to extended use. Most are more accurate than most of us can shoot. I'd go for it.

I was looking for a BHP in .40 and couldn't find one for a decent price. Sounds like this one fell in your lap. If it's a good deal I would grab it.
