This is my parkerized P3AT that i got for $290 OTD. I loaded the mags and used a shell to hold the slide back for a few days to pretension the springs. I started off with a box 25 Rem Golden Sabers,higher powered SD rounds, to work things in. Not my favorite but they performed admirably. I then fired 100 rounds of blazer aluminum flawlessly except for two smiley faces on the last mag when i was intentionally limp wristing with only my weak hand. They cleared easily with a tap,rack,bang. I think i tried to re strike the one that is set back. I have since ran a box of Winchester SXT Supreme (no talons) with no problems and am loaded with this until i can find the real deal Ranger-T. I read that Gold-Dots work well too.I am impressed with its reliability with many types of rounds.
