The Pitbullís sight picture was large and easy to acquire.
The 45 ACP cases are shorter and were more easily ejected from the Pitbull.
The ejector has a built-in spring-loaded plunger, so no moon clips are required to shoot 45 ACPs.
Note the barrel is off center (arrow). Shouldnít have left the factory in this condition. It made shooting cockeyed.
