The MASADA has passive safety mechanisms, including a firing pin block safety and a crisp trigger reset with a built-in trigger safety. It features a fast, easy and safe takedown mechanism with no need to pull the trigger for disassembly. The pistol comes in another variant which utilizes a thumb activated manual safety. The slide comes standard with improved front and rear cocking serrations and enhanced ergonomics with an improved grip angle. The low barrel axis reduces recoil and improves sight recovery. The body is a glass-reinforced polymer frame with a polygonal cold hammer forged barrel in a 1:10RH twist.
