As you can see, the right grip panel is not marked. The grips on this pistol are replacements, but they mimic the originals fairly well.
This pistol sits very comfortably in my hand, and part of the reason for that can be seen in this photo. The generous amount of inset at the top of the grip allows the gun to nestle nicely between my fingers and thumb, while keeping the hand-eating slide well above my hand. The grip angle, no doubt derived in part from other successful pistols of the era, also contributes to its overall comfort.
This gun's single action trigger pull is on the creepy side, but not too terrible. Its average pull weight is about 6.5 pounds. Double action, however, is tough. It takes a fair amount of force to take up the slack in the trigger, and then the last portion of the pull is extremely heavy and requires the trigger to move (creep) quite a ways before the hammer falls.
