High capacity is a plus, but handfit was not for everybody. The Hawg 9 would also benefit from a careful choice of sights.

Not everyone liked the way the Hawg 9 felt in their hands. Some felt the pressure exerted to the center of the hand was distracting. Perhaps the bottom edge of the mainspring housing could be contoured. Of the two supplied magazines only one was capped with an extended basepad making room for the pinky.
We had difficulty landing our shots at the desired elevation. A change in front sight may be the answer, but we think a rear sight with a horizontal rather than peaked face would have helped us aim more consistently.
