Our Assessment: With a bewildering array of “tactical” pistols on the market today, this pistol is still a fantastic choice. It is single-stack, making it thin for concealed carry, long enough for a full grip and 8-round magazine capacity, yet still compact and handy, no-snag sights and bobbed hammer, and accessory rail for a light, laser or light/laser combination. It is chambered for 9mm, the least expensive and most available defensive cartridge there is. This pistol comes with just about everything it would have if purchased new except for magazines and is equally ready to be put away in a collection to retain its Excellent condition or put in a holster for everyday carry (after getting a couple of magazines, of course).
