I find that the 1st/2nd Gen 59 series pistol is vastly improved with the Uncle Mike’s/Butler Creek rubber grip panels. These are now out of production but can often be found on Ebay and Gunbroker.
Thanks very much for this information. Looking forward very much to the first range visit with this handgun.
