Mine was quite accurate. When it actually worked. Seemed to have a problem of giving a "click" instead of a "BANG."
IMO, there's better options in that price range. Remington, Ruger, Sig (if you get a good deal... they tend to go for more but they're my favorite in the just under $1000 range), all good guns. Many have great experiences with Rock Island Armory (the one I've dealt with didn't impress me one bit, but I seem to be a minority on that) as well.
