I gotta do some research to see what the differences are with later generations and why mine only has 1 pin over the trigger instead of 2. Although I've owned this for almost 20 years I really don't know much about them. Kinda rediscovered shooting when time and circumstances began to allow.
If the frame looks like this one, it's a Gen2:
The 9mm guns only need the single pin above the trigger, the only reason new one's have two pins is because it simplifies the manufacturing process....why make two different frames when two pin frames work with all models?
