The lower including the grips is more curved in for the fact that it has been designed to fit in the hand comfortably, with the grips textured and an over-hanging part over the hand to protect the user from the slide when it cycles after firing. The sight sits on top of the upper with one equipped with a night sight piece, and two in the back that together for aiming.
