The takedown pin, upper left arrow, required a small screwdriver or other lever to pry it from the frame. The finish held up well enough, but we recommend finding something less abrasive for this chore. The rearward lever was the slide lock. The magazine release, bottom arrow, was flush with the sides of the grip and had to be pressed on its forward edge to operate. We liked the decorative grip pattern.
A subframe seated inside the polymer lower receiver was topped with aluminum rails.
The slide was handsomely sculpted. The sights front and rear were machined into the slide.
