some Panther questions

Currently looking at a Panther in Blue on the net. I have gone over the old theads here but still would like some clarification.
Does steel alloy frame mean it has a lightweight frame? I understand it had some mim parts but what do the owners think about the gun? Accuracy? I seems it was made during the Bob Serva time so it must be pretty good. What is the current general impressions of this older pistol? How is the out of the box accuracy?

Hi there...
Mine shoots just fine.
Have the big dot sights.
I run Wilson mags through her.
Double diamond grips.
Never had a problem.
Got it for around $500 .
Hope that helps.

I tried to call you but I think I got a number wrong? The gun is a blued steel, cast frame with forged slide. The gun uses an external extractor (no longer available), XS big dot sights and loaded with MIM. The guns were discontinued around 2003. Quality of the older guns varied a great deal but most were pretty good.
