Limited Run .38 Super
I am pleasantly surprised by the limited-run Firestorm .38 Super. At $260.00, I had misgivings, but I figured I've have another gun to tinker endlessly with. Wrong.
Out of the box and 200 rounds later, no FTF's, FTE's or hiccups. More accurate than the shooter. Smooth, medium recoil and right back on target. The trigger smoothed out and and I'm gonna work on it a tad, but it'd be fine just like it is.
#1 Gripe - sights aren't worth a damn. I guess that manufacturers all figure we're gonna replace them, and they're right! I gotta say, though, that the factory sights were sufficient for some impressive shooting...some of it even by me!
#2 Gripe - cheap, tinny, gritty mags. Chip McCormack's replaced the OEM.
What's new in sights that you guys would recommend for a combo truck/range gun?

Could you give a little more info on the mags, as in are they standard .38 Super mags ?.. I've seen the Firestorms advertised but haven't seen one in person... I've got a Colt Govt model .38 Super, just curious because the price you quoted would make it a nice truck gun.....

I recently picked one of these up too. Long time wantinga .38 super after having shot SACs STI .38 super.
Suprisingly accurate for meand I dont mind the sights. I was supprised the mag did work as the thing is parked inside and out. Repeated use should wear it in. I new from my first glance Id need more mags. Megar has 9 round mags for $16.95 of which I also picked up. Still have less than $300 and am having fun.
