We believe the Smith needs a new crown. It was the least accurate gun in this evaluation.
A polymer base pad provides a forward protruding lip that lengthens the front strap by 0.6 inch and completes the grip frame. But without this base pad, the grip is too short and the gun is out of balance, in our view.
