If I were to buy a new auto it's be a CZ-75 compact, but if I were to go polymer it's be a M&P
Of course my next handgun will probably be another S&W .357 magnum

Well, I'm a bit late to the party here but I would have guessed a custom Thompson Center in 375 H&H decked out with all of the BBQ day necessities. What else would one need besides a chiropractor?

Sixto, we all have to make changes from time to time. When my 228 was in a condition similar to yours I moved on as well. Though I find myself wishing I'd done as you had done. If I would have had one in mothballs the answer would have been to change to a new pistol and carry on. Since I didn't have that advantage and the fact that 228s were getting more and more difficult to find in good condition I made the jump. I miss the 228. Its replacement is capable and runs flawlessly but it just isn't the same.

This just in from SIXTO's 228 "I didn't care much from him anyway"
Don't believe what you hear and only half of what you see!
Ok, I'm not completely ditching the 228, so don't worry. I just want a new gun and platform to play with.
Speaking of, a nice little brown box from Brownells just showed up. On to stage one of the m&p project. New sights and some odds and ends for a trigger job. (And some more mags )
