Caliber is 9mm Luger, 9mm Parabellum, 9x19, call it what you will, THE 9mm. Like its contemporary Colt and Browning pistols from the same production period, one is best served with round nose full metal case ammunition or Remington Hollowpoints with rounded bullet contours. Barrel and slide are 5 1/8 inch Colt Government length, blue steel with Tokarev type bushing setup. Rifling is six groove right hand 1:10. Sights are stake-on blade low profile front, and matching dovetailed blue steel rear that is drift adjustable only for windage. Extractor body is internal. Safety setup is main safety only for cocked-and-locked carry, with no grip safety. The Star safety, however, will engage with the hammer in resting and half cocked position.

Trigger is .238 serrated face, with .433 checkered serration hammer. Pull is two stage six pound vicinity, with minimal felt creep and overtravel. Magazine is blue steel factory Star.

Weight empty is 35 1/2 ounces, with center of gravity at the back of the trigger. Finish is blued steel, with white trigger and case colored hammer. Surface detractions are moderate, principally edge wear and occasional finish freckling.
