It came with great big honkin' slide-stop and thumb safety on it. Combine that small gun with that strong a recoil spring and it had some bounce to it.
When I first got it, I was checking it out. Load five rounds in the magazine, shoot it dry. Load five, shoot it, etc. So the gun would be locked back, I'd load a clip into it and reach out and depress the slide-stop. Real easy to do, since it was "extended". Didn't have to shift my grip. Then I'd try to shoot, but it wouldn't fire. Safety was on. Every time. I couldn't understand it. I didn't remember putting the safety on, but there it was. Even when I, intentionally, left it off, it was on.
Then my mind started working. Ain't no way I could have put the safety on. Slide was back. Gun don't work that way. Whadaheck?
So this time, instead of looking at the target, as I had every other time (look at target while bringing gun up, depress stop and fire), I watched the gun. The gun jumped so much, under the force of that heavy recoil spring slamming the slide home, that it bounced my hand enough for my thumb to hit the bottom of the extended thumb-safety and put it on.
Hmmm. Time to get out the dremel. If you look closely at that picture, you can see some "shiny" at both the slide-stop and the thumb-safety, where a whole buncha metal has been removed. That "extended" junk is unsafe. Coulda got me kilt, if I had been using it in real life without playin' with it first.
