Steer clear of the pheonix. They are prone to failure in the recoil system, mag release, and striker assembly, and replacement parts are nearly impossible to find. We have a few here in ziplock bags as parts guns because of it.

I'm sure not lol. On a good note we do have some spare parts for them if something goes wrong. 3 things that will help you along with it.

1) Don't remove the grip panels. There are several parts just held ito the frame by the panels. when they come out, they dont like to seat back in right. That's when you will start running into mag release issues.
2) Only disassemble when it's absolutely necessary. There's a inserted frame lock that also seats the recoil spring that wears very easily when disassembled excessively. The recoil spring also has a tendency to fly out and disappear.
3) Never dry fire it. Rimfires are bad to dry fire anyway, but the steel around the breach REALLY quickly distorts from firing pin strikes.
