    Havent had any major problems...but i have noticed that Remington Golden Bullets dont really work worth a darn...so i ended up gettin some PMC .22 Zapper rounds from a friend and never once had to manually eject the shells like i had to w the Remington Golds...I believe they are junk...i bought a 550 box of them and had maybe 450 of them that actually went off...So, no more Remington Golds for me...Not one problem w the PMC's though

    I have a 22A-1 target pistol with the 7 inch barrel and I love it. I have had it for 2 years and have put thousands of rounds through it with no troubles. Remington 22 shells are complete junk. Surprisingly the 550 round box of federals which are the cheapest I have found are some of the best. At most like 3 duds in the whole box. I have had 2 duds in one clip with the remingtons.

    Actually the golden bullets are not bad. Different .22's like different ammo, just have to try all brands and see what she likes. I have a winchester 190 that will shoot anything.

    I just picked a used one up at a gun show at a good price. It's got the realtree camo finish, so I have to be careful of laying it down or I'll never see it again! I put a couple boxes of ammo through it without any hickups and so far it seems to shoot as good or better than the old rugers I've had in the past. It has the same weight and feel as my 1911s though and I love the magazine release. Just one work of advise, DON'T PUSH THE BUTTON ON THE END OF THE FRAME UNTIL YOU GET A TAKE DOWN/REASSEMBLY MANUAL!!!!!! LMAO!!!!!!!!!!:smile2:

    Once you have done it once or twice it is pretty easy to take apart and put back together.

    Yea, it's easy, if ya got the manual, LOL! Mine was used without the box and manual. I got home and let the curiosity get the better of me and pushed the takedown button. Next thing I knew, I was on the internet printing out a manual from the smith and wesson website to get it back together, LOL.

    I've had mine for 10 years or so now. Very good shooter! The only thing bad about it is there is a plastic stopper the spring sits against.
