  1. While I have not laid hands on one of these I must thank the engineering team for thinking “pocket carry” in the design of the magazine release.
    The use of a “1911” style magazine release will have you finding a dislodged magazine on occasion making that design unsuitable for true pocket carry. This is one item the MPA380P looks of have avoided. Beyond that, let us hope it is reliable and has a set of usable sights.
