I have never shot one.  I was curious if anybody had and their personal review regarding the function and design of the pistol.  If you have never shot one or owned one please don't reply with second hand horror stories or some such.

I have owned one since thry cane out. It is a great shooting gun and a very simple design

The only bad thing is the trigger.  Long, terrible reset, terrible feel.  The trigger reminded me of a plastic gun you had as a kid.

Not exactly pretty, but I liked the grip.

I bought one when they first came out and never had a problem (aprox. 3000 rds.). Sold it to a collector for a profit last year. I had heard all the horror stories but never experienced them. Would buy another if they remake the model and offer it in .40.

IMO, It was a unique design that was ahead of it's time. It was esentially a pistol version of our beloved AR's. It used the AR's rotary bolt instead of the traditional tilting barrel for the delayed blowback action. The fiiring mechanism was a striker but was reset to "quarter-cock" after each shot making it more like a DAO for safety and putting less strain on the striker spring. True, the trigger had creep in it but had the design caught on, would have been refined in later/competing models. Instead the Glock striker fired action became the standard which is equal to carrying a 1911 cocked but not locked.

I remember reading in the NRA's American Rifleman, the gun shot something like 4-6" groups at 75'.
