This is your typical 9mm, semi-auto pistol. It has a black, polymer frame with stainless slide/barrel combination. It has been advertised as a "personal protection" firearm. It is objectively, an intimidating weapon with the distinct collaboration of the two colors and obviously a "ready to fire" gun with the lack of a traditional safety. This is an affordable firearm that I would recommend adding to your personal "home defense" collection.

This firearm has responded well to the near 700 rounds of range ammunition it has been fed. With the exception of 2 misfires, it has flawlessly punctured the primer of every round through the chamber. It is, as listed earlier, a "personal protection" piece-this is all too true as it appears to dance around a target only to taunt you with the thought of a bulls-eye. Under no mistake from the operator, this gun fails to consistently shoot when equally supported during successive shots. If you are in the face of a shoot-out, at a range of 10 feet, this would be a great gun to have in your holster. However, I would not trust it to hit a wild javelina charging at me from 20 yards. It is however (being stainless), a breeze to clean. This gun can be disassembled with one hand and cleaned with ease. It is simple enough for a first-timer to maintain.

I mention the trigger as it is the sole "safety" mechanism that S&W claim for this weapon. It sports a sort of elbow that locks when fully depressed to engage the firing pin. However, this feature does not by any means adequately replace the function of a traditional safety.
