The accessory rail is a bolt-on piece, but overall weight was still less than 25 ounces unloaded, making for true lightweight carry. The Tactical Smith & Wesson pistols feature contact almost the full length between the frame and slide.
The modest checkering on the front strap was very effective, especially in combination with the forward lip of the magazine. We had some trouble releasing partially spent magazines, but the beveled treatment of the magazine well was effective for speeding up the reload.
Our only real complaint about the Smith & Wesson design was having to depress multiple levers in order to replace the slide. But using the back of a magazine to hold down the rear lever made it simple.
