The gun is all metal and very sturdy. The weight is suprising, and it has a really good balance, helped out by the gas mag, which is just about the same weight as a real loaded mag. The build and finish are good, the slide action is clean, and the breakdown lever, slide release, and decocking lever all work just like the real steel. All of the mechanisms on this gun work like the real steel. There is no safety on this pistol, but with the double action trigger and the decocking lever, you don't need one. Most pistols, when you use them as sidearms, you want to cock and safety before you holster it, that way if you suddenly need to use it it's ready.

The sights bear white dots, that help aiming in low light conditions. This P226 is equipped with RIS/Picatinny rail on the frame that allows the attachment of various Flashlights or Laser Sights.
