Just read a review in the a gun rag. Looks interesting enough. 18+1 in the chamber. Low bore axis. Not sure I would buy one, but at least somewhat interesting. Just thought it was odd I never heard of it. Some interesting features.

    It was originally made in the United Arab Emirates back around 2012 or so....the entire line was recalled because they had a habit of going off during drop tests....They showed back up last year I believe..

    Guess I don’t understand the shortened sight radius. But then, I don’t understand a lot of tactical things.

    But it's got a "tactical claw" thingy!

    Yeah, no....  That's ridiculous.  The proper rear sight in the proper location can be used as a hooking point to operate the slide one handed just fine.

    I know it is an optical illusion, but that slide makes it look like the barrel is drooping.  The  image that comes to mind are some guns in old Loony Tunes cartoons that had a droopy barrel problem.  :D

    they were out years ago.  my LGS got and sold a couple.  

    from what i remember the top of the frame had a sight channel cut in there was only windage? adjustment on the front.

    also from what i remember the few people that bought them didn't have any issues with them and they were fairly accurate.
