I learned about this firearm project from a firearms dedicated crowdfunding website called Gun Dynamics. By browsing their website you can find several gun-related campaigns but one of the most significant and interesting projects is definitely the crowdfunding campaign started by a company called Sirca Tec and dedicated to funding a really exciting pistol called SLF-X. Let’s take a closer look at this project.
The whole idea behind this project is to design a pistol that would be extremely easy to shoot with as less muzzle climb and felt recoil as possible. According to Sylvio Lorenzut, the designer of this gun, he started thinking about the design of this pistol because his wife and four daughters love to shoot but don’t feel comfortable with handguns chambered in calibers larger than .22LR. I am pretty sure that most of you have encountered such situation where female shooters or shooters with low grip strength or even people that are presented to handgun shooting first time have difficulties with handling the full caliber pistolsespecially when it comes to making quick successive shots. Even if you have sufficient grip strength it may take some time until you get comfortable with shooting handguns. There are of course exceptions, but generally speaking, the problem that the designer of this pistol is trying to solve does exist.
