Designed for everyday carry and personal protection, the EZ-to-use recoil-operated semi-automatic features 8+1 capacity, a load-assist tab for quick handling and easy loading. Adjustable white-dot sights adorn the Armornite-finished stainless steel slide for quick target acquisition while maintaining a snag-free design for reliable on-body carry.
