Does anyone here own one? Any issues?
Yes, I have one. It is a fairly early one. For a few months I used it as a CCW. It's pretty low round count. The only issue so far: the attractive, black finish just peeled off, leaving black stains on my clothing and skin. My sweat is pretty caustic; couldn't leave the metal unprotected. So I had it gun-coated. While it was in hospital, its place in the holster was taken. But it has a nice trigger; so it became the frame for a .22LR conversion used for teaching.
