Our Assessment: This is a unique looking target pistol with a lot of built-in features that are simply unavailable on lesser quality pistols. These include an inertial recoil mass system, an adjustable trigger assembly, and a receiver with integral Weaver type scope mounts. With its oversize walnut grips and heavy receiver you don’t have to worry about either a muzzle light pistol or a pistol that is going to shift in your hand. This is really a quality pistol in remarkable condition, and the experienced target shooter will really understand that as soon as they put it in their hand.
