Reload was accomplished by sliding the rear port back and removing the cartridge, which contained both power and the gas mix for the weapon. The overall frame is durasteel, with a dallorian coating to aid in heat dissipation and am ergonomic carbon grip.
Originally put out on the market at the same time as the DL-44, it was advertised as a true gunslinger's weapon. Though less customizable than other offerings, it was made to a high standard and was easy to repair and maintain. The detachable macroscope on top had variable zoom, and the included holster was designed for rapid draw using a maglock system. It was incredibly rugged, capable of surviving a good amount of punishment or filth due to an enclosed design. Because of its weight, proponents have suggested using it as an improvised club in close combat.
