Well, hell, why not?

I acquired a Smith & Wesson Model 457 on the cheap. This was their compact "Value Series" .45ACP Third Gen auto made from '96 to '06. It features a lot of shortcuts to keep manufacturing costs down but, if I remember my gun store days in the '90s, it was priced closer to a Sig Sauer P245 than it was a Glock 30.

The gun has a fair amount of wear, and there's a decided hitch in the single-action trigger pull. I think I'm going to do some research on Third Gen S&W trigger jobs and see if this is something I even want to mess with. It's not like I can really hurt the value of the gun...
