Todd: How does the pistol operate?

Alex: It is very easy to operate. Simply slide the cartridge into the front of the receiver, put the barrel on, and turn it to the first click for safety. Turn it to the second position for firing mode, and use the cross bolt button safety. The gun is double action only, with three levels of safety. To fire, pull the trigger all the way back, which allows the striker to spring forward and fire the gun.
