I am new to precision pistol shooting/bullseye, and spent a lot of time trying to decide on my first truly accurate .45acp, and am extremely pleased with this choice. I think it will be a while, if ever, before my own capabilities match those of this pistol.
I can say that everything you have read about how smooth the slide is, and how incredible the trigger is true. Alex is correct that the pistol is extremely easy to field strip and a pleasure to clean.
Alex, Vladimir, and all the Pardini USA staff I have had contact with have been extremely helpful with my questions, and made the whole experience of purchasing this pistol a delight.Rating: [5 of 5 Stars!]
