Oh well. (And that just seems really inefficient from a manufacturing standpoint.)
You nailed it. As I've gotten into collecting both S&W and Colt handguns I've come to realize that S&W has always been a better run company. More efficent, better organized, less chaotic in it's product development and output. Colt has made some great guns over the years and in some aspects better than S&W, but Smith is just tighter. Even in the bad old Bangor-Punta days in the seventies and eighties S&W was a better run company. Also S&W has better relationships with the fans. Colt tends to be a little more distant and harder to get info out of.
