It's still a tack driver. It's still very reliable.
I love my Mk III target and it shoots pretty tight groups. It's a pain to clean but like all my other guns gets cleaned after every trip to the range. I guess I'm just "old school" when it comes to that. If I remember correctly, a dirty weapon was grounds for an article 15 in the service.
