Found one of these today at LGS. Been considering it for quite some time as a replacement for a Glock 19 which I hadn't used for quite awhile. Was able to do some trading and brought it home last night. It is a "Performance Center" revolver and doesn't come in a box, per se, more like a briefcase! It has a number of features of refinement that I like, little touches that make it really nice. The chambers/charging holes have been chamfered from the factory. Just a little break in the angle to facilitate the cartridges dropping in. Comes with rubber and wooden grips, and a couple moon clips. I messed about with the moon clips, and they do speed up reloads quite a bit. The muzzle is ported, which is a feature I haven't had on a handgun before. Not sure about that one... The front sight blade has a tritium dot. The finish is blued, but a matte blue - perhaps to give a low reflectivity. The hammer is sort of shaped like a spade from a deck of cards, rather than squared off. LGS dude says it is less likely to snag on things. Another feature I am not so sure about. I'm still taking it all in, but it seems very well designed with self defense in mind. The action is somewhere in between a standard S&W and a well massaged action job by a custom gunsmith. No perceptible stack on double action, but still a little notchy or stagey. The single action pull has a little creep, but that might wear in with use. I've been carrying a LCP or a 45 ACP 1911, or my old favorite, a S&W 22-4, 45 ACP revolver. Mostly the LCP because of the size of the other two. The way I see it, 7 rounds of 357 magnum in a revolver trumps 7 rounds of 45 ACP from a more complicated autoloader, and most assuredly beats the pants off 6 rounds of 380! Reloads are about the same speed as either auto pistol, and that will improve with practice. The way I see it, there is less to go wrong with a revolver. Just "point and click!" A friend of many years introduced me to the L Comp as describing it the "Cinderella gun." Not too big, not too small, just right. It is as heavy as either 45, maybe even a little heavier, but AIWB carry is slick, the round butt making it more concealable than either of the others, and the barrel is short enough to not touch anything "down there" that would make it uncomfortable. I'll put a few rounds through it today to see how I like shooting it. Maybe you guys are like me, I just like a revolver for defense over an auto pistol. Hopefully this one will fit the need. ETA: I wonder if that port on the barrel will capture a lot of lead when I shoot cast bullets - which I will be doing exclusively, reserving jacketed bullets for carry only (hopefully will never have a need to have been shot through this revolver).
