I just got this today, and i like, very much.
Fit and finish: oh the fit is exemplary. it almost feels when i rack the slide as if it is on berings. im not sure if it was tighter than my baer, but it feels better. Terry told me something to that extent, now i understood what he meant(no i didnt buy it from Terry but he did talk to me and was very helpful.[Terry didnt seem to be interested, and he explained why and i understand,in a trade in.]).
it just looks like it was put together better, in an overall sense. it also has slim grips(pretty) and a short trigger.
so its perfect for a 5'3" guy like me.
so of course the ergonomics are outstanding.
okay the stainless steel frame is really nice. good lookin. my only problem is the slide finish. yuck! that armor-tuff stuff is ugly! blue my damn slide! that keeps the weapon looking great, as opposed to outstanding.
okay...how bout checkering. its excellent. looks great, works great. thumb safety has very positive action but hopefully it will get just a tad bit less stiff(but is not an issue). also ergonomic.
beavertail is nice. very sensitive(you move it a little it lets you pull the trigger).
keep in mind i havent field striped this weapon yet as it says not to(manual) until youve shot about 300 rounds through it. guess it better seats the parts. so i havent got the chance to look at everything in detail yet.
but i think this will be sufficient.
the bushing and barrel were snug.
the weapon overall is equally snug as it should be.
the trigger pull is excellent. better than my baer, with just a little bit of take up.
shooting: well i only put 50 rounds down range because i thought i would have to lube it(feels like it still) but the manual says to keep it as (or at least to not break it down).so i am going to have to shoot it more. oh boo-hoo! how did it shoot. way better then me, but it also made me shoot very good. i just did a chest and tricept workout yesterday and my fatigued tricepts made me shake somewhat. but even still, brand new and me in less than fair condition,
the weapon is still very acurate. the sights are fast and almost dead on. it shoots a little high, but i dont think i was aligning the sights properly. its much more precise.
did i say i liked the novak like sights?
i havent shot in around 5-6 months, with the weapon broken in and me re-broken in, i think we are going to make beautiful music together.
oh it has the standard guide rod and plug in although it came with a flgr. i cant wait to shoot this thing again. it will be a delight.
i would at this point reccomend a wilson product to anyone. but time will tell if it continues to be so.
p.s. thanks for the recomendation Son. i probably would have bought a TRS, but im glad i picked up this one.
