The Sigarms Revolution offered several details that are unusual, one of which was the way the magazine well was beveled. Note the clean sculpting at the corners. Checkering front and rear wasŻsuperb.
The SigLite night sights were sharp as arrows in the dark, but we thought the daylight sight pictureŻwas cluttered, especially at the rear sight. We suspect the small disk on the side of the slide (arrow) was a firing-pin lock, but a key was not supplied. The external extractor was flawless in our testing.
