    It's pretty fun to shoot and the ammo is pretty damn cheap right now. Penetration is supposed to be really high, so it's only good as a range gun. On average it'll shoot a 85 grain bullet at around 1600fps. Flat shooting too, I was almost as accurage at 100 yds as i was at 25

    If I could get one for say, $120, with one mag and 150 rounds of Sellier & Bellot, would that be good?

    yeah... i remember reading about some issues with the S&B ammo a long time ago though... hard primers, i think. either way- go for it

    also get a 16# wolff recoil spring and also get an uprgraded firing pin

    surplusrifle.com has a break-down on how to do it all

    The decocker thing makes me nervous.

    What do you do if you need to cease firing and you're in battery?

    (This may be a stupid question, I have never owned, and rarely handled, pistols).

    I'd just drop the mag and eject the chambered round.

    test it out by sticking a pencil down the barrel and hitting the decock.

    if it fails that test, just drop the mag and eject the round


    are you gonna go through with it?
