Loom Num

Reading up on the difference between the 59 and 459 leads to noticing the differences between the 459 and 659.

Steel slide and aluminum frame on the 459, stainless steel all around for the 659.

That makes the 659 a tubby girl.

An entire loaded magazine heavier than the 459.

2.3 vs 2.9 pounds.

I would express concerns over aluminum's durability here, but there's model 39's running around doing just fine.  Some of them are quite long in the tooth too.

Thinking about materials always gets me wondering about changing the perfectly cromulant nylon stocks on my 59 over to something pretty like walnut.
