My wife and I grabbed two of them as soon as we could. Here is a mini review. My other testers were 8, 10 and 12-years old. Finish: Matte Black Cerakote. For young shooters I like it. Rugged.Loading gate: Hard to open, but will loosen up with time.Trigger: MIM stainless, the pull was smooth.Hammer: MIM stainless, the pull is rough on little fingers. That said, this is also a good safety feature for new shooters. Weight: 30 oz. It feels good in the hand.Overall: They are very accurate and fun to shoot. Don’t let the naysayers (who probably don’t even own one) steer you away. For a buckaroo/buckarette, or just target practice/plinking they are perfect. I mean come on, it is a Ruger for under $200!
