EDC: SIG P938.
I was reading through the latest Handguns magazine, and noticed a couple of Colt references, and a few other things that I found interesting. One, was a complete road test of the Springfield Loaded. This pistol has been on the market for four or five years, so why does it need another test? I have yet to see a test of the XSE Colts, even though they've been out only a couple of years. In the test, the author mentioned "Colt's now defunct 1991"; is that more Colt's-not-selling-to-the-public BS, or is he referring to the new rollmarks? There was also a quite detailed slamming of the Double Eagle, by the same author, in which he complains at length about the external drawbar (which never gets much commentary when it's on a Beretta), and the lower-than-most-DA's bore line. This guy used the fact that the DE's trigger mechanism runs parallel to the rest of the action, rather than below it as in most DA's, as an area for criticism. Most people will acknowlege that the DE's action design allows a lower bore axis, while this guy seems to think raising the bore axis (a la S&W DA) allows a better purchase on the trigger. I suspect he just doesn't like the fact that Colt isn't sending them any ad revenue.
