Yeah I shot it again a few days ago and I'm getting used to it now. Man I'm falling in love with this thing. Made it my carry gun. Just a good accurate reliable piece of history and artA pain to clean? I find they field strip very easy. I have never thought of them as hard to clean. Now, quick to get dirty? Oh yeah. The inside of the slide especially will gunk up on you quick; 100 rounds and it's time to wipe it down, at least. Must be something with the way it is designed...or something.
600 rounds from a blow-back design, like the PPK/S, will make you winch a little. The barrel stays put. There's nothing there to take up recoil but a smallish recoil spring and the web of your hand.
