The daughter and myself shot it from 3 and 7 yards. Sights are right on. Trigger is great in single action....a little long in Double action but smooth. We put 100 rds of .38 125 gr. FMJ thu it with no flaws what so ever. Extractor stroke is a little short and dosnt fully eject the brass...was the same on the Charter Arms we tested. I put 5 Rem. .357 125 gr. SJHP from 7 yards. A little more accurate than the .38s. But they are 60% faster, also twice the enengy. Wouldnt want to shoot very much of them out of this gun. My daughter shot 1....All she said was WOW !! Although she did center cut the shot. I then let her shoot my S&W Mod 28 5" .357. BIG DIFFERENCE. That you can shoot all day. We ran out of ammo or she would still be slinging lead. Have to get a set of dies now....LOL and another trip to Sierra for bullets. I did have her clean it. Ran 3 patches of Butchs thru the bore and 4 clean patches....spotless. Also ran 1 thru the cylenders and brushed the innards good with it. Sprayed down with Brake cleaner...dryed and oiled. Good to go for next session. Only takes 10 minutes. All in all...a nice pistol...@ $360 out the door a pretty good deal with a lifetime warrenty. Tested the Positive Lock system. Insert key behind the trigger and half turn. Cant cock the hammer or work the action. Half turn takes it off. Comes with 2 keys on key rings. If ya lose em, just a small allen wrench with a key handle. The frame is Poly, cylender is steel, barrel is stainless. Front sight is Fiber optic and rear sight is adjustable for windage with supplied allen wrench. Comes with full sized grips installed (long) and a set of shorter grips. Both sets of grips are hard rubber substace. At just under 21 oz a nice .38...little light for a .357 but OK. Even tho its rated for .38 +P think I would just load some lighter .357s....same difference. Using the Sierra 125 JHP bullet will go .38 and .357 with same bullet. Already checked and Sierra has some good looking loads for both using Unique and CCI 500 small pistol primers.
