    Pros were the skinny form, high reliability and the grip safety.
    Cons were weight, limited quality magazines and the known safety concerns.

    That said, the 1910 interests me... I still like the old school steel options, how does the weight carry and what are you using for a holster?
    Walk-Softly,

    A few photos are attached. You can see the grip panel modification along with the grip thickness difference with the Jay Scott grips. I haven't decided yet on that grip thickness difference with my hand ergonomics. The pocket holster was made by Tucson PD officer Matt Stoner. After Bruce Nelson died, Matt bought Bruce's holster rights and equipment from Sandy.1910 1.JPG1910 2.JPG1910 3.JPG1910 4.JPG1910 5.JPG1910 6.JPG

    For pocket carry I prefer the butt mounted magazine release used be to common. The grip mounted mounted push button magazine releases of many modern pocket guns in my experience when carried in pockets tend get accidentally pushed releasing the magazine in the pocket. The seecamp magazine to its credit also uses a butt mounted magazine release.

    The butt (or more correctly "heel") located magazine release is fine and there isn't anything wrong with it for ANY pistol. The change was not an advancement rather than the influence of the US gun market and its fixation with speed loading (something that is only useful in gun sports).

    In any discussion on weapons, there will invariably be a point where some old guns are brought in to the chat. I am with Payne on this. With the availability of new and better weapons, I do not see a reason to use a relic any more than we would use a 1940's vintage automobile as a daily commuter. Just my opinion.

    I recently upgraded to an Airweight 642 and retired the 640 because it is a better pistol.
