I just realized a couple things.
First, I seem to like the alternative round in a classic design better than the original. 6.8 in an AR and .38 Super in a 1911.
Hi! I am McThag and I'm a heretic.
Second. The new Colt has no magazine safety and no loaded chamber indicator. It has a firing pin block, but other than that it's the same level of dangerous as a made in 1912 gun.
There's only my wits and prudence keeping the gun from going off unintended.
And I like it that way.
Two of my .25's have magazine safeties and I just cannot help but think that "feature" is asking for an accident to happen.
