Newly designed anatomical slide and slide catch. The sides of the slide are smoothed and snag-proofed easing the insertion and removal of the pistol from its holster. The rear transversal serrations on the slide allow for a firm grip even in moist conditions, facilitating slide operation and safety control. The slide catch (slide stop) has been redesigned to conform to the unique lines of the slide and frame. The slide, and other metal parts such as the slide catch, the disassembly latch, the safety lever (if present) and the sights are coated with Bruniton, a material that provides superior corrosion resistance and reduced  friction.
