Mechanics: The action functions correctly. The Brigadier model has a beefed-up slide at the locking notches, making the slide more suitable for heavy use, especially nice for a pistol chambered for .40 S&W. We did not fire this handgun. The single action is crisp, and the double action is smooth. As with all used firearms, a thorough cleaning may be necessary to meet your maintenance standards.
