I do love how the feature list includes "Ambidextrous manual safety" on a firearm with a right handed only grip though.

They look like a "crown" sitting on the slide instead of an integral part of the design.
For such an elegant design (ok, what used to be, since the front pin ruins the lines too), it sticks out as a distraction.
I still want one.
