    Hopefully the poly frame will knock a few dollars off the street price. With any luck we can finally get these neat little guns under the $500 mark.

    Looks like it might have steel slide rails embedded in the plastic frame.

    Maybe Dan Wesson or Wilson Combat can make one os these and we can be asked to pay only $2200 for it.
