I parted with all but one of mine, but I just can't let the last one go.
Good for you Cindy. You got a fine firearm at a great price. I am weak, and if I worked in a gun shop, I would have to live under a bridge.
I thought you already did.
Thank you... I have worked there part time for over 4yrs and i have never got a paycheck..stuff follows me home..and i always owe them money...lol.
I need to start looking for some sexy new grips
Marschal Grips might be an option. They've got a variety available for the 75 Compact.
Back when, there was a one-man shop by the name of Omega Custom Grips, run by Sam Barbakov. Exceptional work, with most exotic woods you've ever heard of. Custom shape, palm swell, finger grooves, thumb rest, etc. Stellar product. Doesn't seem to be around any longer, though he's got his LinkedIn account still showing. If you can find him, it's worth it. Completely "makes" the gun.
My only WONDER 9mm was a Taurus 9mm millennium and after sending it back two times for repair work, I sold it and WONDERED Why I ever bought this gun. I learned the hard way!
In the early '70s I recall reading of the recently introduced S&W 59, combining the DA/SA of the Walther P-38, and and a high capacity magazine as in the Browning Hi Power. I don't recall who coined the term "Wonder 9" for this and similar pistols. There were early reports suggesting reliability of the early 59s was not stellar. Of course most of us in LE in those days were limited to revolvers anyway. But these early concerns about reliability, and the 2x2 feel of the grip, caused me to decide against buying a 59 for myself.
I have owned a few of the 59's decedents though, 5906s.
