    I have an XR9, which is the same gun, basically. The article is misleading; it claims the unlock block has to be regreased every 30 or so rounds. Utter nonsense. The XR9 works nicely if you feed it the right ammo, as the article points out. It is built to tight tolerances, so if your ammo is oversized it might object, but that’s no different from any other gun with a to-spec chamber.
    I’m hoping Bond will redo the XR45 next. That one needs a bit more work, though I have some ideas to try.

    A squib 10mm is still a viable self-defense round.

    I own a Reising model 50, semi automatic and it is a unique and high quality rifle, its a shame it has the rep it does. Keep it clean and it is a great rifle. A family member left it to me, and I’m really glad I looked into it instead of just trying to sell it, going to become a family heirloom.

    I also have an XR9 and agree that the greasing comment is nonsense. My magazines also have followers, and I haven’t had any magazine feeding issues. I HAVE had failure to feed issues, but that was in the internal mechanism that pulls the round out of the magazine and then loads it into the chamber, and I haven’t seen that in normal operation past the first few hundred rounds. The biggest issue I have with it is that’s it’s ridiculously easy to short-stroke the action, which invariably results in a very hard-to-clear jam. As long as you are careful to pull the slide back hard each time you cycle the action, the gun runs fine.

    I have both Boberg and Bond guns: the latter improve on the originals, but both work.
