BTW, MT2008, get my PM over at TFL?
Yeah, got the PM. Sorry I forgot to respond...

Also, is the DE really unreliable? I have no idea, because I fired only 5 rounds from the gun that I fired. I gather that it requires quite a bit of maintenance compared to most semi-auto pistols (which is to be expected from any weapon that's gas-operated, especially a pistol), but I can't imagine one jamming unless you limp-wrist it, which is inevitably going to be a problem for some people. The rotating bolt really throws the spent cartridges pretty far, plus it has such a huge ejection port.
