    Excel makes some really interesting firearms. If the ammo situation turns around the .30 Pistol is something I would really like to have.

    I have an Excel Accelerator pistol that had a couple issues. The pistol, according to Excel, is designed around the CCI Maxi Mag cartridge and works best with that cartridge. I've used Winchester Super X and Winchester Supreme with reasonable results but with more than a fighting share of malfunctions.

    The other issue is yet unresolved to date.

    The firearms are well built, big, and heavy. The polymer handgrip on the Accelerator pistol is very hard which makes it uncomfortable to shoot; but, again according to Excel, can be ground down for a better fit if need be or desired.

    They are difficult to find on the market both pistol and carbine. The $595 price tag on the carbine sounds reasonable.

    I'd love the opportunity to shoot the carbine in .30 and .22 Mag calibers.

    The magazine loading tool is so simple even a GEICO employee could do it.
