It is the older style barrel, but I think it shoots good for a semi auto. I ran 20 more of the Rem/UMC cheap ammo through it before it got dark. The mini did not like it as well as the Hornady. The groups opened up to 3.5 at 100. It needs a better trigger. I can tell I am moving around because of the hard pull. He wants $700 for it or trade for my 2003 model S&W 1911. I have not had much luck finding a good used one. Local GS's want a new price for worn rifles.
