I went to look at one locally and I then ordered me one. My brother liked the deal so he ordered one also. The dealer that I had it sent to said this price was $80 above his cost for the gun.

Are they made in Turkey?

I believe so.

Couple guys at work have them. Truck and camp guns. They like them but as I understand the support if needed isn't there.

They go bang reliably. Nice capacity.

The Taurus G2c and G3c are great guns at the same price point. We have Glocks and Sigs that perform no better.

He can get them for $139? Did you mean to say, below his cost? What is the normal markup on a gun?

Can't remember when I've ever needed customer support for a gun.

I purchased two caniks, at the same time about 2 years qgo. Chronic failure to fire on both and they both went back to the factory twice. They couldn't solve the problem and ultimately gave a cash refund on both pistols.

The guns were garbage. Customer service, excellent.

I recently picked up a g3c for kicks. It was on sale. The pistol is pretty rough around the edges and can't really hold a candle to my shield.

Here are some issues after about 4 hundred rds. A rough and unpolished feed ramp. The pistol shoots waaaaaaay low. The travel in the trigger is so long, I sometimes think I'm having a failure to fire. As if to say, "why hasn't this pistol fired yet"? I then realize I haven't reached the break point in the trigger.

In the 450 rds, it failed battery 3 times, using 115gr cci ammo and steel. Failed to eject a spent brass casing twice and failed to lock back once on the last round. It had zero issues however with limited and mixed jhp ammo.

Anyway, there ya have it. You get what you pay for. After my experience with lesser brand pistolas like canik and taurus, I've finally learned my lesson.

Thanks! Just ordered one. If nothing else, it’ll be a good truck gun.

I have a SAR .45 that I love. Big, heavy da/sa with a 14 round mag, cloned (licensed copy) of the CZ. Would buy another SAR, and may get this, though I'm trying to stick to .45 and .357 do that I dont need to stock too much different ammo.

now sold out.

Got mine today. Looks and feels like the HK. Taking to range tomorrow.

Trigger was rough but a couple of dry fires eased it.

Let us us know how it shoots.

Almost bought one for the wife.

I am looking at the PSA dagger as well for $300
