Are you right or left-handed?


What features does this gun have that appealed to you?

I like the double action and the safety features. The safety decocks the gun and disables the trigger. Also, the trigger won’t work if the magazine is not loaded

Tell us about shooting this gun.

It is easy to shoot. Very little recoil. Easy to pull slide back to rack a load into the chamber. Very accurate and sights are clear and easy to see. Not night sights.

How would you describe the recoil, is it manageable?

The recoil is very slight. It is small and light weight so there will be some recoil but not anything that will jump out of your hand like a 9mm

How does it fit your hand, are the controls of this gun easy to use? (Safeties, slide pull, magazine release, trigger pull, etc.)

The gun is very comfortable in my small had. It comes with two grip sizes to help with grip size. The mag release is on both sides and the safety release is easy to use with one finger. The trigger pull is a little longer than my other guns but not bad.

Do you like the sights on this gun?

The sights are good. They are not night sights. They’re adjustable so can fine tune them to suit your sight picture. They are pretty durable.

How reliable is it?

It is very reliable. I have had no issues with mine. No jams or misfeeds and I run over 600 rounds through it.

Any problems with any type of ammunition?

I’ve had no issues with ammo. I use cheap ammo and it is fine.

Was it easy to take down and clean?

It is easy to break down. The break down lever is stiff and small so I use a small screwdriver to flip it down. You can do it with a finger but it is hard to get a hold of it. Barrel is fixed to the gun so you only remove the slide and spring.

Is there anything you dislike about shooting this gun?

I don’t have any dislikes about shooting this gun. I love it

For someone considering this gun, what would you tell them?

It is a great gun for beginners or youth shooters. Recoil is minimal and the gun is light and comfortable for small hands. It is very reliable

Would you recommend this gun? If no, do you have a preferred gun?

I would recommend this gun. It is fun to shoot and won’t wear out your arms with recoil. I carry it with me all the time in my purse. Its light and small and of course mine is purple!
