Just wondering what this is in regards to Pre Lock and Lock? Please pardon me ignorance, but I am thinking about buying a Smith in the future.
I’d just remove it if it were to bother me.The 442 and 642 at least are made with or without the lock. I have a newer 625 with the lock and it has given no problems. I think only the very lightweight .357’s gave problems. I don’t like needless complications on a defense piece, so I avoid the lock.
