This had an excellent grip profile, but it was marred by an awkward safety lever and a tricky manual-decocking regimen.

Hammer back on-safe, we had the option of pushing up on the safety to fire or manually decocking the hammer. With the safety on, the trigger dropped the hammer to a safe position. But we found the hammer was not easily controlled as we decocked. It was simpler just to put the gun on safe and pull the trigger. We think this could lead to a bad habit.
The takedown latches were grooved and mounted flush with the frame. But they needed to be unlocked with a key (keyhole located forward of the latch). The magazine release was ambidextrous, seated flush with the lower rear contour of the trigger guard.
