The pistol is very well made but the trigger on mine was awful. 10 plus pounds of pull and it felt like there was sand not just grit binding the trigger up. But this pistol is so simple it was a quick fix to drop the pull to 5 pounds and get the grittyness out of the pull.
I like my baby Tokarev a lot. The grips have been difficult to get on and off, especially the RIGHT one. The insides are a little rough, and the magazine release doesn't work very well, but it's getting all getting better over time. J&G was great, you can't find the M88a anywhere else right now!
Well......I will never buy anything with the name "Zastava" attached to ever again. Really rough edges, clunky, and jams after every three mags. I gave it three stars only because the finish (bluing) was very nice. Live and learn. Maybe after some smithin' it will be okay.
It's a tried and true design and the price is right, but be careful. Getting one of these is like getting a Taurus.
The first M88A I got appeared mechanically sound at the range, but the dovetailed front sight fell out after less than 20 rounds. J&G replaced it which had much better success, but it looks like one of the two magazines is out of spec - every time the slide moves forward into battery the mag falls out of its lock position. Can't shoot more than one shot at a time out of that magazine. I also had to file down the grip panel interiors because they were binding against the magazines.
Other than those issues, it shoots a little low but that's not such a big deal. Maybe I'm just unlucky with my purchase, but when all is said and done I've probably paid altogether (price+shipping+multiple transfer fees) the cost of a quality pistol. You can take the plunge, but don't get your hopes up that you'll get one without a few problems.
