    I have an earlier version of this gun with a serial number under 100 in a steel frame full size Ina 9mm. It is the most accurate pistol I’ve ever shot. I love this gun. The weight and downward – sloping beavertail make the recoil of hot and heavy rounds minimal for faster followup shots. Might not be my first choice for CCW, but for duty and general use it’s a winner. Trigger is nice and smooth.
