Holding the Glock with its standard mag in place offers a tweezer-like hold for this stout banger. Full-size Glock mags that extend below the grip are unreliable.
The Glock's Saf-Action trigger offers a short enough pull to make rapid fire possible, but skill and a firm grip are needed to make it accurate.
The Glock's rear sight is windage adjustable only. The U-shaped rear sight and white-dot front offered good looks on target.
