is the 22-45 easier to take apart and get BACK together than the other MK based handguns?

Can get on for about $450 + $25 background check.

Anyone have any experience with this gun? Pros? Cons?
I have a Benelli SuperNova, not the Tactical but just a basic field gun. It's great. It has a feature that allows loading of the chamber by hand without pulling rounds out of the magazine......surprising how handy that can be in some applications. The 870 and other pumps that I know of don't have that capacity. I know a guy who has the tactical, his is one with the desert-camo finish, and he really likes it a lot.

I've never taken apart another MK based gun, but my 22/45 is pain to reassemble. It comes apart easy enough. Reassembly requires that you hold the firearm at certain angles while fitting parts and pull the trigger at on stage. For some reason I always need the manual around because I forget a step. Never had any trouble with my other firearms.

No, it's the same. Aside from the plastic frame, the component parts are almost identical but for two minor differences. I know, because I've had them both apart.

ANY gun that makes one pull the trigger whilst putting it together is a bitch. Plus, since I have been a 1911 guy for so long and can litterally take apart and put back together one in my sleep, anything else is a pain. Maybe except for a Glock once one gets the slide draw deal. Even those have a pitfall.

I don't know.....as a 1911 guy myself, I hate how mine shoot, jam and malf when it is time to qualify. I also don't like the looks or the feel. Unfortunately, it is what is issued, and my dept is not enlightened enough to allow us to carry anything else. On the plus side, I know that I can get by when the gun has minor malfunctions. Of course when the trigger quits working (and it has on two occasions), I know do how to run!

Thats a nice feature I do miss having on the 870. I guess you can in a sense do that by not having it loaded to max and slipping what ever round you want in the tube and chamber it but not still like the Benelli.

Thanks for the input boys! I'm pretty set on the Supernova. It just seems like a great value on a gun that will likely last forever.

It's hard to find folks that have a lot of negative things to say about it (other than "it's ugly").

Sold.

I just bought a GSG-1911 in 22lr that is a blast, and tears done almost like a real 1911. There is a screw and pin that hold the barrel, but other than that it's the same.

I've only put a 100 or so rounds through it, but it's nice that I can use my 1911 holsters and shoot for cheap.

Guns I own Springfield Armory 1911, AK-47, Marlin 22 and Benelli Nova 12ga shotgun. The best one is the AK. I have shot over 2500 rounds through it with no problems at all. Paid $330 for it new and was offered $500 for it but I do not want to part with it.
