Not only was the rear sight mounted as far back as possible to maximize sight radius (see arrow at the slide joint), its face was angled so that it extended past the rear of the slide. This also helped to ward off glare. The back of the slide was knurled to reduce glare, too. Note the aggressive cocking serrations.
The front sight consisted of a medium-gauge filament held inside a frame that was dovetailed into slide. The edges of the frame were available for lining up difficult shots. The filament generated a bright dot that enhanced rapid sight acquisition.
The hinge at the center of the curved trigger shoe (top arrow) allowed it to straighten out as rearward pressure was applied. Without this motion, the trigger remained locked. Note the stop inside (bottom arrow) the trigger guard and the surface of the magazine-release button.
