Things I liked:Accuracy is very good right out of the box! Nice feel to the hand when gripping the pistol. It is not heavy so easy to stay on target for a while if need be. Side handle operates fine. Things I would have changed:The stock barrel sights are weak. That is, it is black on black. No white dot system or even a white front sight. The sights could use an improvement BIG time. They work yes, but fast acquisition of sights is slow especially at dusk. The grip does feel a little plastic, so, if I were going to improve this pistol, I would install better sights and a better grip. What others should know:The noise level is minimal when fired. So, if you are shooting it in the city limits this is one model to consider.
