  • Only one sight hole so very little room for sandy, dirt, moisture to cause any issues

Cons
  • High price

View on Brownells

Specification

Cartridge: 9 mm Luger
Capacity: 10-Round

  • Removable steel plate detaches for easy inner magazine cleaning

  • Excellent performance

  • While cleaning it’s not so easy to remove the bottom plate, as the parts do not fit well together with the spring base plate

  • Rounds nose dives into the feed ramp and jam the gun: especially if loaded to capacity, misfeeds
