From beneath the slide the plunger that connects with the trigger to clear the way for the striker can be seen as well as the striker itself surrounded by the spring that provides power for ignition.
The trigger face offers a separate lever that controls the freedom of the trigger to move backward. The small lined sliding lever above the trigger guard is one side of the latch that secures the frame and slide. We found that having to pull them down from both sides simultaneously to be difficult. The magazine release was easy to reach.
The magazine well of the glock frame was beveled along three edges. We think reloading the Glock would be faster and easier if the rear edge was redesigned.
