    Bought a GI Expert recently. No stovepipes, shoots clean, smooth trigger- 3 to 4 lbs., did I say smooth? Accurate. 2″ group at 50′. (Good for me). Tight action. Clean sight picture- I added flourescent orange rear dots. Excellent entry level/ good quality handgun. Para-kote finish appears to be wear and rust resistant. Bryan got a great deal, Best price I’ve seen is $519.99.
