    I remember when those came out, always looked really interesting. I'd like to hear how they actually perform when you get the chance.

    Very compact looking piece - not one I know anything about. Be good to get feedback later.

    Congratulations ArmyCop

    That is a SERIOUSLY NICE compact Carry Firearm that the S&W folks cranked out.
    Obviously, tons of thought went into the design of that pistol.
    Now...if they have "things together" on the production end...that will be one HELLOVA personal protection piece!
    I am very impressed with the design of that pistol.

    Please let us know how it is working for you.

    Maybe you could review & evaluate yours for us.
    That would be great.
    I always like it when members tell us how their personal purchase functions.....because then I know that it's not a handgun that has been pre~tested by the factory before being shipped out to a magazine gun writer.

    I hate it when I this read in a gun article"

    "Representatives at COLT FIREARMS just pulled a random pistol off the production line and boxed it up & sent it out to me for testing and evaluation."

    Yeah...Sure They Did... If anybody truly bites on that BS then they need to have their head examined.

    What they REALLY did was pull a pistol...check it over...test fire it & then cleaned it & refinished it to make it look unfired & THEN...boxed it & shipped it out to the gun writer to be evaluated.
    That's what they all do!

    They are NOT going to take a chance on shipping a "bum pistol" out to any national magazine gun writer...trust me on that.

    That's a pretty nice looking design. What's the capacity?

    Cap 6 + 1. TDA - DA on first SA on the rest till decocked. I've seen it a few times before but when I saw the lack of a hammer (bobbed) I wrongfully assumed it was DAO. When I found out different that's what made my decision final.

    I'll post after I get to shoot. Might be a while tho.

    Thanks for all the comments...

    6+1 is darned good for such a diminutive piece - that's good.

    Thumbs up

    I had one of those CS 45s..GREAT little gun!! Shot the heck out of it too!.....I'm sure you'll LOVE IT ! ..
    One thing I'd love to see though........I'd love to see all the sharp edges rounded and broken......in a melt down treatment of this little gun........would make for one heck of a great carry combo!
    BTW.the higher cap....4506, 4513, type mags work VERY well in the gun........just a tidbit of info for those extra mags you'll want to carry with it.
