my pistol........
david ruhstaller (mt orab, OH) 4/7/2014 9:25 PM
ive had mine a few months now. when it came i was expecting worn markings..... not pitting. luckily none of the pitting was too bad. i gave it a flat surface grind to get rid of all the pitting and along with it, its markings. im not worried about the markings though. i intend to electrolytic engrave a design in the blank sides of the slide. got rid of the mag that came with it. had its pins coming out and it was generally wore out. now i run it with newer 8rd mags. i had to replace the barrel. the chamber was shot out when i got it. couldn't get a consistent shot group from it. and i had swelling in the cases from day one. an easy fix and a cheap one for me. didnt care for the grips and their vertical grooves so i filed those down smooth too. so far ive ran close to 400rds through it. about 20 through the old barrel. fmj,jfp, jhp, frangible, brass and steel case too. it runs them all like a champ. i have this as an everyday carry pistol. overall, i like it. it serves me well now that ive got it sorted out. ive put it through its paces so far it hasnt given me any issues.
Just as described

After big time cleaning I took it to the range. Amazed at the accuracy and how smooth it ran. Put several different bullet types through it without any problems. I like the "distressed, aged finish". Have purchased several firearms from Sarco over the years. Always a good deal. Don't know where or how they get stuff like this but I'm glad they do.
These are good weapons
