They've got their own forum here.  Click on [url]http://www.ar15.com/forums/forum.html?id=32[/url] and post up your questions there.

I've shot the pistol and it was fun.  Just broke bolts when new.  The new bolts seem to work and now you buy spare parts.

Seems like a good 'wife' gun.

Mixed reviews from what I've read.

But, I've never even seen one in CA.

I have a type 21 rifle...It's lightweight , accurate and reliable, but shooting it feels like being poked in the shoulder with a broomstick...only weighs 3.9 lbs and has a real skinny stock....really sweet gun though...would recommend it, for sure.

got a pic of it on the homepage... click below...

I have a type 97 and love it.Shot 1140 rounds of PMC without a malfunction.On 1141 it broke a extractor.This was a Wolf(steel case).I don't know if it was the ammo or not.Thet had a extactor mailed out the next day after emailing them.It shot about 11/2" groups as long as you didnt shoot it too fast.I'd recomened one.
