The front sight is held in place by a C clip. That was a new one on me. It is not a very strong design, but I didn't notice any accuracy problems.

I noticed that the gun will fire if the grip safety is pressed only about a third of the way. If someone were to grip the gun pressing the grip safety only enough to get it to fire, I can see how there would be malfunctions.

It seems as though this gun has resulted in a new type of common malfunction, the double ejection. I am wondering if the goal of making it easy to load resulted in the use of the barest minimum tension in the magazine spring. This could result in cartridges bouncing around. The gun gets lighter and the magazine spring has less tension as the magazine is emptied, which could account for the tendency for this to occur toward the end of the magazine.

Please keep us updated.
