That is not just the S&W issue, but design wise. Accuracy was mediocre, hammer and slide bite were too easy to arrange, etc. today there are better .380s and other choices in the same genre.

The Colt is a better gun.

I agree with all of your points.

I have a nickel-plated Cobra and it is a very nice revolver. If I could replace it easily, I would carry it in my coat pocket, instead of an S&W J frame.

I would pass on the PPK.
