    I don't know from experience but I have seen many reviews of the Excel Arms pistol version of this weapon which they say is the same action as the long gun and they are all bad. They say it jams on Damn near every other shot ( As you can see in all the videos on youtube).

    I am not sure about this but my understanding is that with the semi auto system using 17HMR ammo that is pointed, it has a huge problem cycling. I found this out when I was researching a semi auto .22 mag pistol with high cap mags, I found only two and settled on the KelTec PMR 30 which I love.

    I love the 17 HMR round, it's a tack driver, I wish they would come out with a good semi version of it. I have a Savage bolt action target /varmit rifle that is sweet as well and a semi auto pistol would be nice. Apparently FN has got the problem handled with it's 5.7x28 round in centerfire I don't know what the issue is with the 17.

    What Turtle said. They havnt really perfected the .17 in a semi auto.

    Those things are about the price of a nice AR. Yeah ammo is a bit more expensive but unless you are planning on shooting an invasion of zombie squirrels, a 5.56 AR is more practical even if you just are punching paper.

    My Marlin 60 in .22 was $120 and can kill anything that over priced gun can.
