and was very pleased with it. Recoil was much milder than expected but, still stout. Shot twenty of the Federal factory 275 grain stuff(only ammo I could find). This is my first 500 and just had to try one. Glad I got the one without compensator, noise really hurts my ears, for some days after shooting. Doubt I'll ever need this but, in case I do, it's in the safe. Anybody else have one of these Performace Center pistols?
