Well, I bought it at Bass pro. Came with Case, and extra mag. I was out the door for $349ish. I will try to get out to the range with it soon and let you know. The slide release on it is a sumbitch to activate. I am hoping that will work its way out after it is loaded and cycled a few times.

Try the slide release without the mag in, or with a round of ammo in the mag. It should be much easier to release that way.

Is this a common complaint? I was figuring it was a burr or something, and just needed to be worked out.

I don't know the gun, but it might be a candidate for a bit of jeweler's rouge and a dremel tool to do some cautious polishing on that slide release.

Almost all SA pistols are a bear to drop the slide with an empty mag in place. You're fighting the mag spring pressure against the slide lock/release which isn't normally what would happen with a loaded magazine. I'd try it with the magazine removed and then shoot a couple hundred rounds before trying to fix something that may just need some breaking in.

Do any of you use the hip case that came with it as your mode of CCW?

A few photos to compare its size next to my iPhone.
