  No, it's SA. The DA/SA is the PPK/S stats. All others shown are SA-ish, well except for the LC9, it DAOtardation.

I'm reading on the phone but  think it's the formatting since it's internal hammer

So it's. Slightly thicker, slightly heavier, slightly longer (in reference to the LC9) 9mm in SAO, with a grip safety? Holy amazeballs, I want it.

On my computer now. I can see the formatting properly. Yeah, SAO. This could be very, VERY nice.

Look at that aggressive undercut to the trigger guard, too.

Someone at Big Green is paying attention.

I like it.  This appears to be what I hoped the Caracal would be.  I actually got to fire one of the old original Model 51's years ago and it was the nicest handling .380 I've ever fired so I have great expectations for the new version.

Yes. Yes yes yes. I'm excited enough that I might just be an early adopter, with all of the beta-test nonsense that may entail.

If I pick one up, Huey, I'll let you know.

I really would love a little longer slide without the swoosh line along it. I'm probably being picky though. I'll admit the idea f a compact 9mm with a decent trigger is interesting.

Yep, it's a radical idea whose time came about, oh, 100 years ago. ;)

I love my LC9, but if I can get the same formfactor with a 1911ish trigger, I will toss that LC9 in the safe and not think twice about it.

I wonder if they're going to offer it with a magazine disconnect? I may be the one guy who is not a lawyer or legislator who actually LIKES magazine disconnects ...

I personally don't like them and like them less on pocket sized guns. The possibility of dislodging the mag is just too high for my taste.

That said I'm carrying my 1903 today because of this thread ;)

Ha! I actually dislike them in the BHP, because they can adversely affect trigger pull. I like them in my M&P and my LC9, because they don't have any impact on the quality of the pull, and it means I can take my gun out and lay it down for a moment if I have to and not have to worry about my kids picking it up and getting into trouble (the mag disconnect is redundant to limiting the time it is off my body, placing it out of reach, and having kids that are gun-savvy, but it is still nice insurance).

Luke, unless this thing crashes and burns immediately, you need to get set up to make gear for it, because it looks like it will be popular.

  I've never found the MD to be a detriment to the trigger of my BHP, dry fire is my friend. Talk about s___ty triggers, the M&P wins hands down, with it's indistinct Crossman 760 BB gun-like trigger and there's no mods I can perform, as it's dept issue.

Too bad the James Bond character is forever linked to Walther and the PPK (a couple films with the P99 nothwithstanding).

Bond should be issued a PPS or a PPQ but if they wanted to stay small and elegant then the R-51 has the PPS beat. I like the PPS but it's pretty homely.

Can't even do a gentle round-off on the striker block? That could be wear due to use, you know. ;)

Also, if you have a little hitch right at the beginning, that is probably the tip of the trigger safety catching on the frame. Just hit the pointy tip with a thin file a few times until if no longer touches the frame. Won't affect function of the safety, and there's no way for anyone to know you did anything.

my understanding is that Bond has moved on from the ppk to the Asp...a 9mm smith singe stack modified with clear grip panels to see current round count and rounded corners for pocket carry

You know something about the next Bond movie we don't? ;)

Besides the Devel corporation is long gone and the Asp is decades old.

   In 2011's 007 novel, "Carte Blanche", his sidearm was a Walther PPS, in .40S&W. In the just released (Sept, 2013) "Solo", which takes place in1969 on the continent of Africa,..... I have no idea, haven't read it yet.

What is interesting is that, though the ASP is long gone, some of the features it had have been adopted on more modern designs, or could be easily adopted now.

I wonder how long until someone markets a grip with a witness window.

That is logistically stupid. 9mm is worldwide. Bond can find it anywhere.

If you read it, what was the reasoning?
