If this is your first semi-automatic pistol, I suggest avoiding the MG2. While it looks and feels great, it is mechanically more complex than the typical semi-auto. As to reliability, do a search on "MG2" on the Target Talk web-site ( Not everyone believes the MG2 is reliable. My own MG2 (1100 series) is now (after two BIL repacements) pretty reliable, but not 100%.
May I suggest the Pardini SP as a more suitable and more reliable pistol for Standard and Rapid Fire.
I own both, so I do have experience.

: I am looking foward to buy a pistol that would be suitable for rapid fire and standard. The dealer recommends me the Matchgun MG-2, and he tells me that reliability issues has been solved.

: I would like to have the input of owners about the reliability of their MG-2. Please include the seral number of your gun and purchace date in your reply.
