This model was the largest pistol in our test, but it is also the only one with the front strap undercut at the trigger guard to lower the boreline in the shooter's hand. The sides of the slide are coated with shiny nickel.
Upgrades include an aluminum adjustable trigger, skeletonized hammer, and custom wood grips.
