This model is comprised of over 40 unique pieces. Among those pieces are different options for the Top Frame, Grip Body Frame, Slide, Underbarrel Attachment and Flashlight Body Frame. This includes different options for where or not you want to print the body with engravings, as well as whether you want an underbarrel attachment or not.
Apart from the ribbed grips on the pistol body, the bracket at the base of the pistol body, and all the small accent details. All major body components of this pistol can be assembled without the need for glue.
A slide release ensures that the top frame, slide mechanism, and the grip all stays together, while a screw in "flashlight", keeps the underbarrel attachment screwed into the frame and grip.
The slide is able to be pulled back into a hard stop built into the frame. Then a spring will pull the slide back into its proper place along the barrel mechanism. The slide moves backward until it reveals the cartridge ejection port which shows the inner parts of the pistol including the magazine and inside of the rifled barrel.
Rotating Trigger w/ Functional Safety
The trigger freely rotates within the grip and features a small hook at the top with two catches. The bottom most catch is to hold a small rubber band. The other end of the rubber band should be fastened around the hook in the frame of the grip. This allows the trigger to snap back into place when pulled. The second catch in the hook allows it to be able to snag the safety if the safety is rotated into the downward position.
Removable Magazine w/ Working Magazine Release
The magazine includes five removable bullets. This is enough so that it appears the magazine is full of bullets from any angle.
The magazine cannot be inserted or removed unless the mag release button is pressed in.
This model also features a rifled barrel, optional underbarrel railing for misc. attachments, and removable ribbed grips. Below, in the builds section, you can see that I end up casting those grips in urethane rubber.

All my models are designed with a focus on hidden seams, ease of assembly, little to no support printing, and accuracy in mind.
