Micro Raptor Range Report 4/3

I took the Micro Raptor to the range today with excellent results. 100 rds and only 1 failure to eject, but I think it was due to a weak grip and I may have had my left thumb up against the slide.

As I had previously posted, when I first got it I had nearly 1 failure to eject per mag which was very frustrating and made me question the wisdom of my purchase.

Cleaning was the key. This was my 2nd time back to the range and giving it a thorough cleaning after each time out it shoots great and is really an awesome gun.

I keep Hornady Critical Defense in it day-to-day which always shoots great (at the price is better). At the range I am running pretty inexpensive MaxxTech and it seems to work well.





I really enjoy cleaning my weapons poolside!

As long as it's a "micro" suit.

Glad to hear your Raptor is performing like you want. Keep shooting, I'm sure it will get even better.

Unless you're a bikini model in your 20's the answer is yes

Good to hear things went better this time out. I'm presuming the pic of the target is before you shot :-)
