I purchased the base model New Colt 22 Govt model as a birthday present for myself. Took the gun out to the range and had a great first day. No failures to feed or any problems with 150 rounds. Using CCI mini mag round nose ammo.
I always want a spare magazine or two so I went to the usual sources, Midway, Gun Broker, Ebay, Cheaper Than Dirt, etc. and while most were out of stock those that were thought a fair price for the 12 round mag to be $40 - $50 plus shipping. I went to the UMAREXUSA Colt website and found I could order magazines for $41 each plus shipping. When I contacted customer service about the exorbitant price of these mags Anna of customer service responded that UMAREXUSA was just keeping the price high so the registered dealers could sell me this item. As I noted before, all of the "dealers" were conveniently out of stock. I contacted Anna again and she said that was all she could do and basically hung up on me.
While I know the base model is reasonably priced and in an effort to save money UMAREXUSA is only shipping the pistol with one magazine. I was teribbly disappointed in 1) the price of a replacement magazine and 2) in the non response from UMAREXUSA The New Colt customer service. I only hope this pistol doesn't break as I have no hope they will fix the problem.
