I posted about getting this yesterday. I took it out today to give it a try. 200 rounds through it with no problems whatsoever. Because of the light weight, the precieved recoil is a bit higher than with my Taurus PT-92, but not uncomfortable. The gun is highly accurate but it does bounce a bit more than the PT-92. This isn't really a problem however and didn't take much getting used to. Very fun to shoot. I had also taken this pistol out to the range and put 100 rounds through it:
This one is scary accurate. My wife shot both and like the big PT-1911 better than the FN. When I got home, I cleaned the PT-1911 first, which took about forever. The Taurus version of the venerable John Browning 1911 design is faithful to the original and breaks down in the same fashion. So you have various bits and pieces of gun laying about everywhere when you get it apart. There are lots and lots of nooks and crannies to clean. Then I took apart the FN. After taking it down – the easiest takedown I have ever seen – there were four pieces. Barrel, spring/guide assembly, slide and body. No pins, no loose parts. The flat recoil spring is captive on the guide. That is a beautifully designed handgun. John Browning would be very proud of what FN has done in the almost 100 years since he rolled out the 1911.
