Default TSW "Boxed" Frame?

I have read about the TSW guns having a boxed frame, but I have no clue what it means. Can anyone explain it to me or post some pics? Is it a better design than the regular 3rd gen pistols?

Well, the TSW's do have larger box-type frame rails instead of the smaller rails on the other 3rd gen pistols. Aids in inherent accuracy being one of the reasons offered.

I got a 4563TSW for my new duty gun this year. Compared to the 4566 I use to carry and my 4576 I have notice it bit more accuracy. The 4563 is a sweet shooter.
