It can be switched to eject on the right, or left, side.

I heard on another form that sometimes Glock mags have less than 100% reliability (95%) in some of the AR type builds. That might be something you want to report on for us even though this is a different system.

Was going to shoot today but the Masters kept in glued to the TV.  Then 4" of snow blowing and falling made me get lazy and put it off till tomorrow.  Besides I always like to shoot on April 15th as I mail a check to my Uncle Sam that day and it always pisses me off.  Blowing shit up gets some of the anger out and doing it on a range is legal.

JD;
About 25 yrs ago, I bought 4 of the steel knockdown targets from MGM targets in Idaho, and have used them over the years, mostly for shotgun training, because they are the kind that are spring loaded and pop back up in place after being knocked down.    They are instructive, because it takes a centered hit to knock them down, especially with birdshot, and you can readily tell the difference between a birdshot hit, and a buckshot hit, which really spanks them down! 

The point of this correspondence is that, over the years,  I have discovered the added benefit of stress relief while spanking down steel with a pump shotgun. 

Happy "Tax relief day"!   Shots fired! (bang, clang!)   enjoy.

At last.  I took the pistol out and fired it. 

Pro's:   Recoil is insignificant.   Cycled fine with the Glock 21 mags but some misfeeds with the one that came with the gun.   Nice groups with standard .45 ACP hardball.  Ejection is great and a nice close group of brass on the ground which I like.

Negatives:  The brace that comes on it closes up as you are firing it so a fixed brace will be required.  My sling plate idea is a bust as it cuts into your grip hand.   That problem will be taken care of with a new brace with that has a single point attachment.  This one is because I am old so the Magpul flip up sights are hard for me to see.   I am not an optic guy but I am not a young guy either so maybe time to try a heads up display.

This is a keeper for me and will come in handy on Protection Details and fun on the range.  When it is time to cycle out my carry ammo for my 1911 I will run it through this gun and see how it does will higher priced ammo over target ammo.   Might even drop to a lighter round as I can imagine the speed the 10" barrel will give it.

While we’re on the subject of pistol caliber carbines do any of you recall ad’s in the mid 80’s Sjhotgun News for a company that was converting surplus M1 carbines to 45 Winchester Magnum. Hope it’s not a senior moment.

Just noticed this, Mike.  No, you are not having a senior moment.  I have a friend who had one of those conversions.  Personally I thought it was a horrible thing to do to a carbine, but he liked it.

Guess that was about the time the Ruger .44 magnum Carbines were so popular.   Those made great hog guns but there was not a lot of options back then for ammo.   That gun today would be an excellent brush gun and for hunting down in the whips as some of them turn lighter high speed rounds.

It might be interesting to see what the new gun will do off the rest at 100 yds. Four imches at 100 yds seems to be the standard with a lot pf fols as that is what the old Thompson SMG would do with good ball ammo. I am sure that the optic will make all the difference. My old eyes need optics for any precision shooting nowadays.

I have some Hornady 185 grain coming to try through this weapon instead of the 230 gr I have been shooting.   With a 10" Barrel that 185gr should be smoking for a .45 ACP.   I will try the 100 from a rest just for spits and giggles and will let you know.
