The package weight of the full-size optic-enhanced MC28 SA-TV, including an empty 17-round magazine, comes to 29.8 ozs., which includes the factory-installed Ade Advanced Optics adjustable red-dot sight.

This striker-fired semi-automatic from Girsan supplies customers with a customizable frame that includes user-replaceable inserts to adjust grip style. Making the gun even more versatile and customizable is Girsan’s use of a Picatinny rail along the gun’s dustcover.

Enhancements, such as lightening cuts, help reduce weight while providing additional functionality; the forward chevron-shaped cuts in the slide serve as cocking serrations, too, in addition to the semi-vertical rear cuts in the slide. This unit does not come with a manual safety lever, though a blade-in-trigger safety is provided.
