About the Gun

The M Series pistol is a polymer frame design employing a Browning-style recoil action. It is striker-fired with a double-action only (DAO) trigger.The modern looking frame style has an ergonomic 111 degree grip angle and low barrel axis, minimizing muzzle lift and felt recoil. The frame includes a proprietary accessory rail forward of the trigger guard. Also unique to the gun are its unusual 'trapezoid' sights, similar in principle to the Glock's square 'U' notch design.

About the Cartridge

This cartridge was introduced along with the Luger semi-automatic pistol. The pistol and cartridge was first adopted by the German Navy in 1904 and then by the German Army in 1908. This cartridge has since been adopted by the military of practically every non-Communist power. It has become the most popular and widely-used handgun cartridge in the world. Performance wise, the 9mm cartridge has somewhat more power than the .38 Special but falls well short of the .357 Magnum.
