In a world where semi-autos are only distinguished from each other by slight tweaks, "different" is good. And the Strike One, with a Bergmann-style action and ultra-low bore axis, is very different. Most modern pistols use the standard tilting barrel lock system, but the Strike One operates on a horizontal plane, without risers, so the bore axis remains extraordinarily low. The low bore axis translates into a Handgun that virtually melds into your hand and directs recoil straight back, not UP. Bottom line? The Strike One is among the fastest, most controllable, most accurate service pistols available on the market today.Practically perfect.
The Strike One's unique design gives it an advantage over other striker-fired pistols, but it's the nice touches that really set it apart. The rear sight sits on the backplate, so the sight radius is essentially the entire length of the slide. The mag well is flared...REALLY flared...so inserting a new mag is easy. The trigger guard is nice and roomy, so operating it with gloves on is easy. And it comes with all the goodies: two 17-rd. magazines, full cleaning kit, and lockable case.
