After years of yearning I finally picked up my modern MKIII and it's as many have said. Slick action, beautiful finish and lines. Natural pointer and very accurate in my hands. Special benefit is that it conceals almost as easily as many compacts on me, enough so that it has replaced my SR9c as my EDC. Never thought anything short of a SR45c would have done that.
Factor in the history and legacy and it sure is one fine pistol.
