    I love this gun! Very light ans eas to conceal. The sights are perfect. They are small enough not to hang up while drawing but allow you to find your target. Never had a misfire or a jam in 500 rounds. Bluing is already wearing a bit on all edges, and the slide seems to be sensitive to moisture. Over all its a really good carry gun. Very happy about the 740 slim. Same gun bigger punch!

    I guess this makes my 709 a G3 since the G2 still has the old extractor.
