    OK, so the gun is NOT as ugly in person as it is in the pictures. I mean, next to a Glock it looks like a beauty queen.

    Whoever designed the grip did an incredible job. Its even better than my Steyr M1-A.

    The gun is very thin, yet very easy to hold and handle. The sights had these very large dots that seem to align very easily. Its very light but has enough weight to handle 9mm, I think. Did I mention it is VERY thin?

    The ejection port looks a bit weird in shape, but I imagine its very functional. The trigger is like a Glock/XD type trigger, supposed to be 6 pounds. The ambi mag release lever is kinda clever and takes a second to get used to.

    I've been waiting for this thread! Where did you find one? I need to compare it to my Easy Bake Oven.

    The one I handled was a "First Edition" one for a slightly bumped $588.

    Yes, where?

    I think I want one, but not the "First Edition" model. Any idea when the full production models will be available?

    I've seen several of the First Edition models go thru GunBroker, but thats about it.

    Review of it is in the newest Guns and Ammo - reviewer seemed genuinely impressed.
