  1. Love this gun, I like that it is somewhat slim, has a hammer, decoker and breaks down like a glock, but no need to pull thhe trigger. The standard magazine are actually marked 13 rounds but 14 will fit without a problem. The only negative is the double action trigger is very heavy. 9 out of 10

  2. I own one., love it. Awesome combat pistol. People who have had problems, read the owners manual . Clean before shooting. 600 rounds no problems. Glock 30-39 holster fits like it was made for it.
    Great for the price. I would buy another. I also have a TCP 738 3.80. It too fires every time. Buy it take it home clean it!!!!! It will shoot and shoot and shoot………
    The norm is inexpensive firearm,person new to the semiautomatic world, cheap ammo and factory packing lube. I’ll say no more.
