More Should Be Said About The Firing Mechanism[edit]

The article claims the pistol has a double action, and mentions a partially-concealed hammer.

Since it's not described as a "Double Action Only," I usually expect to see something about a decocking mechanism. I do not see that here. Further, the photo showing the pistol broken down into its major components doesn't appear to show a hammer on the frame. I would expect to see one sticking up above the level of the frame's rails.

If this is a striker-fired pistol, which would explain the lack of any apparent hammer, it is misleading to describe it in any of the usual "something-action" terms, as these most usually describe firing mechanisms incorporating a hammer. While I do sometimes see them (weirdly) applied to striker-fired designs, I would hold the position that it is done in error.

I don't know this pistol, but I post this in hopes that someone who does might see how to improve upon the description of it.
