SPECIAL DUTY FEATURES
An optimal grip angle ensures a correct line of sight and contoured to snugly fit the shooter’s hand. Part of a newly patented modular system, the pistol adapts to different hand sizes easily with interchangeable backstraps (included). An ambidextrous manual safety lever is positioned on both sides of the slide for easy access by all shooters. A reversible magazine release button can be mounted on either side and can quickly be
replaced by a smaller and larger size button. An interchangeable slide catch can also be replaced with an optional low profile configuration. A standard Picatinny Rail (MIL-STD-1913) allows for an array of aftermarket accessories.
1. PICATINNY RAIL (MIL-STD-1913): Integrated rail allows rapid attachment of tactical lights and laser aiming devices.
2. SLIDE: The sides of the slide are smooth and offer snagproof insertion and removal of the pistol from its holster. The front and rear serrations on the slide facilitate slide operation and safety control in moist conditions.
