    I looked at the PSA link and noticed some questions inquiring if it will function properly with 2 3/4” ammo. The product info says 3” chamber.
    Three years ago we saw a couple (not sure of the manufacturer) come through the range. They ran 3” fine but wouldn’t cycle proper With 2 3/4”.

    Got a .22 .30 .32 .357 .38 .40 .41 .44 .45 .480 or .500 S&W cylinder that needs throats honed? 9mm, 10mm/40S&W, 45 ACP pistol barrel that won't "plunk" your handloads? 480 Ruger or 475 Linebaugh cylinder that needs the "step" reamed to 6° 30min chamfer?

    well i ran 25 2 3/4 00 buck handloads and 25 #6 2 3/4 handloads and 10 00 buck loads that were full power bt in low brass hulls and it never missed a beat. if im being picky. the cheap plastic folding sights are a joke. the trigger pull is about as bad as it gets and loading mags is as much fun as a smith shield. the slide release and mag release are back by the mag and theres about no way you can reload without taking it off you shoulder. but i did find a mag loading tool on line and its coming and i had a set of magpul flip up sights . but that said a semi auto that runs handloads perfectly even a few with crappy crimps boggles my mind.i had an 1100 rem that i sold because it wouldnt

    ive put a 100 2 3/4 loads through it. high and low brass but none of it wimpy field loads. it ran my handloads like butter. heres a review i gave on another forum today


    ive put a 100 rounds through it so far. buck slugs and fine and it has missed a beat. no light field loads though because thats not what a bought it for. it shot a 5 shot group with a slug i casted that went 4 inch at 50 using the vortex red dot i put on it. so its a decent gun. that said the trigger is about as bad as it gets. sometimes i hesitate because i think the safeties on. mag release and bolt release are ar styled units but you have to take the gun off your shoulder to push them and the mags at least the ones i have dont drop free. so your best bet is to blow the hell out whatever your shooting at with the first 10 it came with flip up sites that are cheap plastic that id never have on a gun i depend on so it got a pair of magpuls out of the parts drawer. take down completely and i mean completely only takes a few minutes and it does kind of have an ak vibe going on with the internals. bottom line is its a hell of a gun for 200 bucks even the 250 it would cost not on sale. if the trigger was just bad and not terrible id buy another one
