After all you hear about others experiences, it's a wonder why anyone buys anything. My stainless Model 85 was out today, as a refresher for a man who hadn't shot in 15+ years. 200 additional rounds...

Actually, there are enough studies around to provide us with plenty of expanded JHPs, taken from people who died from them. FYI, many agencies still use the military specified 20% ordnance gel today....

Parts replacements from 15K over a couple of years is going to be different than that of the pistol doing 1500 rounds per week. You're correct, though, in that I did replace recoil springs every 5K...

Remington's standard JHP is close to a FMJ profile, and has been recommended for just those conditions for decades.

If you think "throwing it away" is smart, and can convince him of it, as well, I'll take it. There may be something wrong with the gun, but it does have a warranty. Sending it back may be a pain, but...

It is expected to be available by June. Holds 30 rounds of .22 WMR, and is a hybrid blow-back/locked-breech gun.

Similar to the old Grendel P30, but supposed to be much better machined, and...

I've had one since the mid-1970's. Carried quite a bit, shot a fair amount without issue. Put Pachmayr grips on it, the originals looked like a Sophomore Wood Shop project.

Nice gun.

I still have a case, or so, left. At one point I could get it from the local PD for providing a "shooting range" that I had access to for them.:)

Mine has been flawless through nearly 5K of mixed rounds. Hasn't gone back, nor "seen a gunsmith". I replaced the magazines with Wilson Combat pieces for peace-of-mind, not for failures.
