The harpoon-shaped striker sticking its nose through the breechface is the reason for those funny marks on the primer faces of spent brass. The external extractor is not only stylish but protrudes slightly when the chamber is loaded for confirmation.
Two finger grooves are the first warning for those who prefer a larger grip. Aftermarket basepads that add a lip are available, and on this gun, we would use them. The recoil of the .40 S&W was a little too stout for such a small grip.
