just got done shooting my new ultra carry 2 s.s. p.o.a. good,recoil was not bad at all really didn't notice it. msh did dig into my palm but I rounded it and that took care of that. did have fail to go back to battery 3 times 2nd or 3rd shot out of the mag. had to cycle by hand couldn't push it to battery. only shot 100rds. and the pistol seems to get a bit better each mag or maybe it's just me getting use to it. only had the mag that came with the pistol. but all in all good gun.no fail to fires,stove pipes etc.
