A great value and great functioning pistol. I purchased a Glock 27 (.40) to use as my carry gun, unfortunately the 27 was not designed for people with large hands. The small frame does not raise the slide quite high enough to clear the webbing between my thumb and first finger (OUCH) I looked at the HK and Sig229 as well as the SW M&P. I got a fair trade-in on the Glock so decided to go with the PT-140 as a swap + some ammo. Fired 400 rounds to break in. Had NO failures of any kind. As with any small .40, there is some snap to it, but keeping your wrist locked will prevent any failures (feed/extract) I like the safety (though I don't use it) but is there if I want added security(handling at range etc.) the trigger pull is WONDERFUL for a DA/SA. no grit on the pull and has a clean/crisp easy break at the rear(unlike my glock) Heinie sights are a nice oem and did not nead any adjusting for tight groups at 7 yards. I do like my other Glocks and they have their place in my life, but this gem has found a new place on my side at all times. As with any pistol, if it's your first, go shoot one before you buy it. mags slide out clean and fast. Firing pin strikes hard into the primer (similar to AK) but if for some reason your cartridge primer was not seated, you can simply pull the trigger again to fire rather than having to re-rack the slide. Easy to hide and easy to shoot, a great value!
