The hard-chromed barrel bore reduces barrel wear and protects it from corrosion. The falling locking block design provides good accuracy and operability with suppressors due to the in-line travel of the barrel.

The pistol is very weak at 24 damage per chest shot, and should only be used in very dire situations such as close range fighting as a sniper, or being completely out of ammo.

VariantsEdit
