Any thoughts, commets, or replies are much appreciated. Thank you.
I have one for my G20, just got it about a month ago. Once you have assembled and taken down a few time it's just as easy as the Glock slide. The extended slide lock is a great asset to have when breaking down the Mech Tech. For cleaning I use Gun Scrubber in the shower stall, brush and patches down the barrel. I have not taken the Mech Tech apart yet, it looks to be a PIA to do it. It's not very user friendly when it comes to disassembly. You can read on how to do it on the website. Shooting it is a blast, recoil is light, easy to stay on target. I'm getting 1970 FPS with 180gr Underwood and 1520 FPS 180gr HP Berrys/Blue Dot that I make. Over 500 rounds now, have had some fail to feeds. The Mech Tech is well made, very solid platform. Mine is a little on the heavy side with all the rails that I have on it 19 pounds I think.
Any questions feel free to ask.
