The high capacity of this little gun is a plus, but we would have a difficult time being comfortable with this pistol for anything but very close-range fire.

In between the Kel-Tec's polymer grip and the stainless steel slide was an aluminum frame. This frame provided not only the slide-to-frame-fit rails but also housed the firing mechanism.
After locking back the slide, we removed the stop by using a case rim to pull it off the frame.
Our measurement of Trigger Span was from the center of the trigger at rest to the nearest edge of the backstrap. But we also used a dial caliper to measure the distance the trigger had to be moved for taking up initial slack, breaking the shot, reset and the limits of overtravel (shown).
