Finally had a chance to take my 9mm out to the range on Saturday. After hiking in the snow for a while and clearing the bench, I started to play. Overall, I like the carbine. Its heavy like an AK but shoots more smooth. I DID NOT like the red dot that came with it. I lost patience with dialing it in and have switched back to the iron sights, which look pretty good. Dropped it in the snow - so what? Bounced around the Jeep - so what? I like it so far.
