Despite its attributes the pistol did not get anywhere because original rendition had cast steel frame and empty weight was close to 40oz. I would rate it equal to 3rd generation S&W or Ruger 'P' series weapons. The barrel is polished chrome over steel. While a bit loose old Beretta 92 military magazines with steel bases can be modified to work in that gun. Original magazines and spare parts are made of unobtainium. I carry same gun that polish policja and straz graniczna use except mine is chambered for 11.43x23 instead of 9x19 cartridge. Bigger is better.
