Great look, very convincing, sturdy build, plug NOT advised to remove, but is possible, however, unlike other blanks the orange at the then does NOT protrude and, stick out like a sore thumb. If you have to do a movie or get a photo of it at point blank, the plug can be removed, again, NOT advised. This Bruni nickel plated does look and feel THAT real. The clip, drops easily with the push of the button. This 9mm is a great buy. You won't find this quality at this price anywhere else, ive searched!
