After my purchase I went up to Georgia arms ammo and purchased a bulk pack of .380 ammo. 95 gr. hardball and went to the range.....Oh Goody !!!! 8)
The mustang is smaller than the government model and is SA like the government model. WARNING ! Keep this gun outta womens hands, you'll never see it again !
The gun itself is all steel. The only exception is the plastic grips and plastic spring recoil guide rod, and thats gonna be replaced. The recoil spring is actually 2 springs, which I will replace with one spring from wolff. The sights look like they are from a Springfield mil-spec, etc. Just nothing special. I see a set of Novak tritiums in my future....
The safety is easy to get your thumb on to operate. I have it cocked-n-locked now in my Jerry Ahern natural holster.
The magazine release works well. The mag "springs" out so you can slap one to home and continue to fire. When the magazine emptys, the slid stays open.
The gun is a nice blued piece. It looks like a tiny 1911A without the grip safety. The gun came with 2 colt magazines which hold 6 rounds each. Its a hefty piece, one that you'll appreciate and will comfort you with its presence. 8)
I put up a target at about 50 feet and let'er rip. For a lil' gun its got quite a punch. Theres nothing that can't be controlled unless you been shooting .22's and nothing more. Then....it only takes a lil' practice to learn control.
She was accurate with no deviation from the target area. It helped with my good sighting, but I ain't gonna take all the glory. A gun like this should give its user total confidence. After all, its the point of aim that counts, right ? I was comfortable doing double taps, and had a blast with triple taps. I will continue practice with the triple tap and to slow down just a mere fraction of a second so I can regain my sight in the hit zone.
I did not clean this gun before I shot it. Not once did I have a FTF issue, stovepipe, etc. She performed flawlessly from the 1st shell to the last. About 150 rounds worth. SWEET !!!
I'll be the first guy to tell you that I stole this piece for $450. It bluebooked easily for about $100 to $150 more. :shock:
Keep an eye out on gun broker.com and you too can get the same type of deal with lil' or no resistance.
