Does anyone have experience with this gun?
For the most part this seems like a very appealing surplus gun, but I've read several people's accounts that claim they'll jam with heavy ammo and that they can't be carried with a round in the chamber for fear of an AD. Someone else claimed iffy reliability because they were originally chamber for 9mm Largo rather than 9mm Luger, which sounds fucking ludicrous. Any first hand accounts are welcome.
They work, but: Mags, firing pins, extractors. The gun is butter-soft.
No, being chambered for 9mm Largo doesn't make them any more reliable as a 9 x 19..
I'd use one if that's all I had, but I'd rather have a Colt.

It's true. I had one and sold it for this exact reason, it was constantly jamming. Just save your money and get a 1911.
I just bought one as a first handgun; for $250 I think it makes a fun and fairly comfortable 9mm to fuck around with and learn how to handle a handgun, but I don't know why you would want to carry one. It seems reliable and perfectly functional, but it doesn't do anything particularly well either. Unless you literally can't afford a decent used gun for ~$400 I would buy something else for self defense.
its good if you want a cheap shooter and you get good mags with it. I have one and have 2 mags, one of the mags works incredibly well(it was the one that came with the gun) and the extra one can be really finnicky at times though putting rounds through it has helped somewhat.
Mine also shoots really nice, I got 2.5-3 inch groups at 25 feet with it but I have heard some examples aren't too accurate. I guess it depends on how much the thing was used originally
also comes with a neat little manual depending on where you get it from. All in Spanish
