Congrats vireye! Thanks for posting--it was nice of you to post pictures without any harassment
Quite a good looking pistol you ended up with.
I would like to snag one, but they just keep getting pushed down the list in favor of others.
I like the idea of going for the "classic" look, just like I prefer the classic GI 1911 and CZ75 over the newer models. But just like I had to compromise and go with a beavertail tang on my 1911 and CZ75 due to hammer bite and/or discomfort, I suspect I will have to give in and go with a S&W model with its beavertail. I am curious to hear how yours treats you.
