I've put approx 300 rds. thru my 9mm compact, and I am very pleased with it. It does not like weak loads(my own loads), but readily digests everything else I've put thru it. It functioned flawlessly with Wolf and Herters steel case. Once I worked up a hotter reload, I had no more malfunctions with my own loads. I've read alot of good and bad reviews, but I would not hesitate to use this as my prime defensive gun. Check out Top Gun supply for mags and accesories for the 250.
