What features does this gun have that appealed to you?

I was originally attracted to this gun because of the beautiful rainbow titanium slide that was available but I bought it because for the functionality.

This is the easiest racking gun you’ll ever shoot. I don’t have grip strength issues, but I know women who do have issues due to arthritis and they can rack this gun. Smooth as butter.

Tell us about shooting this gun.

I’m not an experienced shooter and I don’t get a huge amount of range time, but even I am able to shoot a 6 inch group from 15 to 20 feet.

How would you describe the recoil, is it manageable?

Yes, the recoil is manageable. About what you can expect from such a small gun.

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

The geometry of the gun, which is 1911-like, fits my hand extremely well. Everything is easy to reach for my medium-sized hands.

Love them. An improvement of 1000% over my previous EDC, a Ruger LCP.

How reliable is it?

I’ve never had a misfire.

Was it easy to take down and clean?
