The weapon design provides for easy firing by right-or left-handed firer. Ejection port is located at the top of the slide with ejection straight up and to the back. Triger is striker fired just like in Glock pistols. Rustproof plastic frame makes the pistol lighter. The pistol can be fitted with a laser designator.
