WE TAKE UP WHERE JMB LEFT OFF

Recoil - - Hi Power Redux - BY IAIN HAR­RI­SON PHO­TOS BY KENDA LENSEIGNE

Back in the 1980s, if you wanted a 9mm hand­gun for se­ri­ous pur­poses, your choices were severely lim­ited. The Glock 17 had just been in­tro­duced and was still get­ting the side-eye from just about ev­ery­one, Beretta was cash­ing in the adop­tion of the 92 by the U.S. mil­i­tary, and ev­ery­one who tried CCW’ing one likened it to stuff­ing a fat chick into a Mi­ata — and the S&W model 59 vari­ants were OK, but DA /SA op­er­a­tion and slide-mounted safeties are not ev­ery­one’s cup of tea.
