Received the Alfa blank pistol much quicker than expected.. It is well build and works great. I've already used it in training and this past weekend at a field trial. Cannot be happier with this purchase.

So easy to use. Well made and isn't some flimsy piece that will fall apart after some use. We've put a bunch of primers through the pistol and everything is working as expected. A great tool for training and will definitely recommend this to others.

Pistol is great. Easy to use. Great, consistent strikes every time. Holster takes a while to break in (still in the process), but very sturdy nonetheless. The ease of finding primers vs. blanks for me at my local Cabelas was a no brainer when choosing which Alfa pistol I was going to buy.

I have not had a chance to use it as TJ had surgery and no training for another week. A friend has this same blank pistol, and have used his many times, so should be no different. I liked it, so bought my own.

By far the BEST I've used for training. This is a very solid quality made primer pistol. Size, weight, fit and feel of a true pistol. Also high quality leather holster is a perfect fit to the pistol. Highly recommend the kit!!!

Excellent product. I've used cheaper quality starter pistols in the past, and they tended to jam, and the trigger pulled very hard. The Alfa 209 is very high quality and should last a lifetime if properly cared for. Another nice feature is the cylinder. Holds 6 shots, The cheaper model I used previously only held 5.

"Returning it. Can't use it in our town. Texas. You'd think otherwise."
The kit is a little pricey, but leather holster is great as is the heft and balance of pistol. However, I did have a problem with 209 primers fitting the cylinder openings in two of the six openings. I sent an e-mail to Steve and there was an immediate response. New kit on the way with return label, and that is the five star part! Gun Dog Supply people are personable and a pleasure to deal with.

"Seems to be well made. Heavy framed 209 primer gun. Should do the job just fine."
Extremely well built. It's a bulky gun. Only real down side is you can't see how many rounds are spent without opening the cylinder and you need to take every primer out. Very difficult to take the spent primers out without taking all of them out of the cylinder.
