    A couple of questions.


    1. How much weight does the 4566 save over the 4506?

    2. @Lost River Regarding the 4586, is the trigger that bad? I thought it was a lightened trigger pull vs a traditional DAO.

    I donít believe the weight difference between 4566 and 4506 is much- theyíre both significant. My first issued gun (in 2006) was a melonited decock only 4566 in a G&G level II holster. I wish I kept it after buying it from the agency upon adoption of M&P45s.
    Anything I post is my opinion alone as a private citizen.

    How was the Gould and Goodrich level II holster?

    I find the 23 to shoot worse, for me. In fact I attribute the 23 to much of the .40 hate.

    Have you tried a GAP floorplate or GeePlate? I have the GAP on mine and the gun locks in my hand very solidly.

    A +2 factory floor plate helps a great deal as well and adds one extra round.
    I was issued a Gen 2.5 27 in the late Ď90s and bought it when we went to G23s for everybody.
    Recoil was more noticeable than my G26 of the same vintage but not painful.
    It is waiting for my son to get his Maryland HQL so it can legally be transferred to him.

    Guess I own it for nostalgia then...but accurate and reliable and not as heavy to carry as the all steel versions

    I briefly owned one of the Chiefís Special .45s, kind of wished I had kept it.

    I rarely shoot my 4506 anymore, parts availability and qualified armorers are both in serious decline. I donít think we have any department armorers left for them, and at one point our entire range staff were all qualified.

    It's an issue weapon and changes aren't allowed.
    Bring me my broadsword and clear understanding.

    Sig P245

    Well I traded a Sig P245 ( 45acp ) for a Glock 21. I only took the 245 to the range once. Each time I shot it, I had to reposition my hand.....just wasn't much to hold onto (grip area) with this compact 45. Later in life I got an 8-shot Gen 1 M&P 45 and that works great! As far as gun regrets go, I have many. The one of many I could have a do over on would be a Colt Python. Regret letting that one go...........blue 4" barrel. Oh well.

    Yeah, I was finally going to get around to sending a 3953 off to Frank Smith and have him tune it up. Both bummed and saddened.
