I didn’t even know I needed it....A buddy of 20+ years (really like an older brother) and I were talking about the current state of affairs and what’s possibly to come; he brought up importation, past bans etc. and we started discussing AK’s. He loves those things, Polytech and Arsenal mainly. I’ve shot them but don’t own. I have some rifles/shotguns but primarily live in the handgun world. He told me I needed an AK. I told him I did not. He said he’d make me a deal I couldn’t refuse. Turns out he was correct.....

I just sold the one I had for nearly 20-years, and never fired. It had sentimental value. Romanian, with the "donkey-dong" handguard. A friend of my passed-on friend, built it in AZ. It had a 3 1/2lb trigger....and was a beauty.

Okay......
I don't target-shoot handguns, and don't shoot slow. I put a bad-guy target out to about 12 yards, and fired at it as fast as I could keep the dot on the head. I was shooting 10 round groups. I've never shot a dot-sight on a pistol before, and it was weird. I was averaging 6-8" groups , all in the cranium with 147gr Fiocchi and the Federal 115gr-ball shot a bit lower. I was shooting fast. With nothing else to compare to, I believe the pistol to be very accurate with these 65 year-old eyes. Oh, and the bad guys don't want them shooting at them.;) Next time, I'll try shooting slow. It's difficult for me.
The Kimber-micro was obviously not anything like the Phoenix. I shot it with 90gr and 115gr. Lets just say at 20ft and rapid....They were all kill shots. The 90gr was a handful.

It was great day. Shot 2 new guns [200rnds total], hung out with my 2 closest friends, had a great lunch [IN a deli], and now relaxing in the warmth of my office.

Thanks for the report. ;)

It'll be weeks before it's shipped to the FFL, and many months before I can actually shoot it.
I just ordered optics for it. A Shield RMS, will co-witnesses on it.

It's cool that it has a provision for a rail [wasted space], but I don't see any real practicality. What a great nightstand pistol. Keep a 30+ round mag handy, as a spare.
