    Howdy all,
    I've been wondering if anyone has any experience with these (other than the guy who's trying to sell them). Does anyone know if they are any good or not? How do they function with mixed brands of ammo? Are they reliable? Do they only work with a specific brand of ammo? How much do they cost and are they worth the money?
    Thanks fo your imput.
    Cheers, Stevo

    Kinda like Bigfoot, I've heard rumors but never seen any company that makes them or anyone who owns one.

    Yea, they work. I got to help in the testing and development, the pre release samples worked just fine. Then after the release I have shot 3 different units. When shot bone dry you will need premium clean ammo that's extra velocity. If you run the slide wet with oil, I am able to have above 98% reliability up to 200 rounds in one sitting with just about every ammo. This year I stopped at 200rnds each outing since 22 is still hard to find. I would not recommend heavy grease that actually gave me more problems than running dry.

    The XDM version should be just about ready.

    Some pictures from before they were released to the public.

    I was not aware that they made these for XD's

    Thanks for the information.

    When will they be mass produced and available?

    :)
