Added a 10-round magazine. Hope to live fire test it very soon.

Looks like those MIGHT be available through their "pet" distributor, my dealer is still waiting on his pre-orders.

Finally did get one of their 22TCM/9mm 1911s, I have to say it looks like your example has a much better fit and finish than mine. When I opened the case, I thought they might have sent me a used gun, it looked like holster wear and rub marks under the controls. Closer inspection revealed that the finish is just that thin. No big deal, it's a project gun and a range toy, not a collectors' piece. So I clean and lube it, see how the controls feel- not great, the right side of the ambi safety almost immediately begins to move independently of the left. Hmm, field strip it again, then remove and inspect the safety. Turns out the tab doesn't fully engage the slot out of the gun's frame, and they're both too short to even make that much contact in the frame. Again, not a real big deal for me, since I was planning to swap out various parts anyway, but it doesn't speak well for "My guns work, out of the box."

Don't mean to rain on your parade, and mine may be an isolated incident, but I thought it was appropriate to remind others to inspect firearms carefully before purchase if fit and finish matter to them.

Looking good! I got mine thinking I won't touch it at all, we'll see how long that stays true.

Also 2nd fit and finish before sale comment, if it made noises when I shake it I wasn't getting it (excluding the SCCY).
