Dead thread, resurected.
Please forgive me for reviving this old thread, but something just occurred to me relative to Webleymkv's posts number 6, 10, etc. relative to the S&W ILS being a emotional response to the flag hole in the side of a S&W, and that it would not be a problem for us (those who hate it), if we did could not see it. It occurred to me that I have the same negative "emotional" response to the Colt series 80 firing pin lock although it does not manifest itself externally and thus, cannot see it. In that case, I still know that it is there. An un-needed, superfluous abomination, as is the ILS on revolvers.
