Smith & Wesson 15 + 1 Round 40 S&W/Ambidextrous Safety/4.25"
[206300]
$441.00
by Josh R Date Added: Saturday 29 December, 2012
Not impressed so far. Haven't fired it yet but initial impressions of the fit and finish are not favorable. My observations:
- The take-down tool is impossible to remove. I had to use a pair of vice grips to get the damn thing out and it was just as difficult to get it back in.
- The slide-to-frame fit is pretty bad. Lots of slop and the slide doesn't go back on to the frame smoothly after take-down. Lots of wiggling and pressure needed to get it back on.
- The trigger is terrible. The release is acceptably crisp but you have to pull it through a yard of gravel first. Crunch, crunch, crunch, click!
- Safety is non-intuitive. Up for safe, down to fire is the opposite of what I expected and different than every other hand gun I own.

We'll see how it does at the range but at this point, I'm thinking the Glock 22 would have been a better choice.
