I juess I will just keep tabs on here and when they start hitting the stores this is the first place I will hear it from. I am saving my money. My P99 Compact needs a little brother
That is not entirely true. If you remove the backstrap you will see that the serial number has been hidden.Now for the ones waiting for a black one.... be advised that these will not come with a test target anymore......at least that is what I was told.
Also I am sure down the road you could always buy a black frame and change them out if you desire to do so, since the PPS is somewhat built like the P22 where the "frame" is just the housing to the actual reciever (again see the pics and how the serial is not on the frame)
Are you saying s&w doesn't deal in the real thing? This is something that some have posted here that early has said before but no one has ever been able to back it up with what it means. As far as customer service goes, I don't feel like I need to speak to an owner or even a manager at s&w, every time I've called they've treated me like I was their most important customer.Are his prices a bit high - maybe, but he deals in the real thing and is a small business - not at all like S&W. After all, when was the last time you called Smith & Wesson and spoke with an owner?
