They had a 4" for $50 cheaper, but I really like the size of the compact. It's not too small nor too big. And it felt like very high quality. I didn't realize that the back grip was rounded...it's a perfect fit and good weight. Everything operated very smoothly. My gun will come off the same assembly line as their current military order. If you want a 4" cheap this guy is selling them for $415 new. http://www.thehighroad.org/showthread.php?t=185378 Now what do I have to look out for with this gun? I know the slide has rust problems. Anything else?
