With the cylinder open, a button screw on the right side of the frame could be pressed to remove the cylinder and crane assembly. A 9mm cylinder is available for the handgun, but one wasn't included in our sample - too bad.
Testers noted they could hold high on the grip, so the pistol was manageable even when shooting rapid double action. The front of the trigger was squared off like on a SIG or Beretta pistol.
The Barracuda came with fixed sights. They needed a dab of white paint to stand out more.
