I have taken one off the wall at my LGS and put a few rounds through it. All I can say it was the oddest experience I've ever had with a revolver. I've been shooting S&W revolvers for 20+ years and it was not even close to similar.
I had a tough time determining when the gun was in SA mode and DA mode, the trigger was mushy and long in DA but pretty solid in SA.
With the recoil I couldn't tell much because the only ammo I had at the time was some .38 spcl target loads.
I only put a couple of cylinder through it, but I still say it was my oddest experience with a firearm. I will never own one.

Yeah it's been around for a year or so now. But I think experiences are still very limited due to lack of availability(never seen a single one in person), and also because it's such an odd design few people want to be the test case for it
