First please refrain from telling me what a jerk I am (at least for buying this gun). Earlier models must have had slide cracking problems? This INOX version has a really wide slide with an ejection cut out. I've had both mini kel tecs and just didn't like em. I do however need a mag finger extention for the 3032, anybody know of a resourse. Part of the attraction of this thing is it's almost as ugly as I am.

There are not many options available for the Tomcat. For what you're wanting, your best option may be to just get a 10rd mag from Pro-Mag, as it extends about an inch past the grip.

I've got a plain blue one, I like it well enough for what it is.. Try the "search" function, this gun has been discussed alot here.

Some people like the pop up barrel. I had trouble with the slide on mine cutting the web of my hand. Turns out you can't have a "fat" hand with one of these. I traded it for the P32 myself and I'm happy with that..

Thanks for replies and info. I've got a 21A in .25 also, I kinda like the tip up barrels. Although in .380 it seems unecessary.

I second the 'fat hands' (mine are just big ;) ) comment, I have a nice pair of "RR tracks" on my right hand. I replaced the stock grips with a set of Ajax Black Diamondwood. Aside from being good looking, they have more pronounced palm swells that help me index the pistol a little better to avoid the slide bite and have a better grip in general. Recoil is a bit snappier than one would expect - YMMV

re; tip-up barrels - the recoil springs on those little guys are fairly stiff, and they're a real boon to those with arthrytis or deminished hand strength.

Mike: Ajax seems to have Promag magazines. Didn't think about grips when I was on site. I'm gonna look now. Thanks.

Popeye.........

Another set of grips to check out are those made by Pearce. They are a wrap around type rubber grip. They fill the hand MUCH better than the stock grips, but don't extend any further than the bottom of the frame. And if you have a newer model Tomcat, it'll take a little Exacto knife surgery on the grip to get it to clear the thumb safety.

You are a jerk.

Next time buy the Titanium model! Although it weighs as much it has the cool factor!
