One of the few I REALLY regret selling. Fun to shoot, makes a m1 thumb look like a splinter. Mine was accurate enough to hit a 200 yard 1' swinger all day long with Greek surplus 8mm. Watch the gas cut off as they tend to get rusty because of corrosive ammo. be sure yours includes a magazine. hard to find loose. I am looking for one again myself. Prices seem to be escalating lately ($600 plus for a decent one).

I had one, kinda wish I would have kept it sometimes, but as a whole it was pretty neat. I will say that if you're not careful & aware of the safety position, Garand thumb won't seem so bad.

Had one years ago. Our club would allow any military semi auto to be shot in the 100 yard DCM matches. We had one shooter who thought he was a hot shot. He complained about every other shooter on the line and behind the line. He expected everyone to be silent when he was on the line like he was a golfer making a put on the 18 hole at the Masters. At one match he complained to the Match Director that my 12 year old son who was behind the line was talking while he was on the line. He wanted my son exiled to the range parking lot. Long story short my son was totally innocent. The next match I shot to the hot shots left and my bubby shot to his right. You guessed it we both were shooting Hakims. After only a few rounds fired the hot shot pulled himself off the line, packed up and went home. My buddy and I were the range hero's that day. But Match Director asked that we do not do it again.

I bought one many years ago and still use it,No problems at all with it other than yes it is a 8mm semi auto cannon,No james or malfunctions works flawlessly,one thing I have learned for others who own them is if the gas system works perfect do not mess with the setting,And thats what policy i have followed.

I have shot thousands of rounds thru it and as long as i use military surplus ammo 8mm it works flawlessly,Accuracy is also pretty good,Its no tack drive but not a dog either.Just keep your fingers out of the action as if it springs closed on your fingers,you might have quite a mess on your hands.

One thing about mine is its all original and the top of the wood is painted black ,I assume to keep it from being spotted at night when it was in service,Very fun gun to shoot.
