The blued finish has bad reviews for endurance. Their customer service is on the lesser side of things.
I would not buy one, I don't like their marketing, I don't like the machined checkering on them, I've got ink pens with better metal work. But they tend to run although there are instances of parts breakages, particularly the thumb safety.
Under $1K I'd take a good hard look at Springfield, Smith&Wesson, Rock Island and the STI Spartan.
