Ok, then I challenge you to watch the cylinder and slide video I posted, and go for that one.
In that video, the guy said that it adds an extra safety against dropping the weapon. Since you got to play with one, did this gizmo seem to effect the trigger at all?

It seems like having to lower the hammer by hand when a round is chambered is much more difficult than simply sliding the safety on with one's thumb. Most people would require two hands to drop the hammer where as the originally designed safety requires only one hand in most cases to operate. (unless your a lefty and have a standard right hand safety).
I can't see where this is going to make much progress, solutions to problems that didn't exist tend to fade pretty quickly.
Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

Definitely pretty nifty. But, let's all keep in mind that 'nifty' does not mean 'necessary'.

Please take everything I say with at least one grain of salt- I am a very sarcastic person with a very dry sense of humor.
