I get a great feeling every time I hold my S&W PPK/s, in answer to all complaints I say "This is not my carry gun", it's a work of art. It doesn't have to do what a throw away plastic gun can, and long after I'm dead someone else will admire it, assuming people don't vote for anti gunners.

The caliber is way too small, the capacity is small, the safety is in the wrong place and functions weird, the mag release is in the right place, but since I'll never carry it none of that matters.

For people who choose one or a few guns and only guns with carry potential it might not be the best choice, but as a functional work of art that will be valuable for hundreds of years it certainly is. One of my guns is for carry, not admiration, the other 50 some are only for admiration and shooting for fun.
CNC produced 416 stainless triggers to replace the plastic triggers on Colt Mustangs, Mustang Plus II's, MK IV Government .380's and Sig P238's and P938's. Plus Colt Mustang hardened 416 guide rods, and Llama .32 and .380 recoil spring buttons, checkered nicely and blued.
