    I’m sure it is a really nice version of a S&W Model 59, probably the very best ever, the pinnacle of the design. The problem is that I had a Model 59 in 1980 and so much has happened since then and now I want something different as my needs have changed.

    Ken, though the Lionheart LH9 looks like a S&W 59 Series pistol and other than the fact that a 59 series magazine will work in a pinch, the similarities are only skin deep.
    If you take a look at the photograph that accompanies this article, you’ll notice that the LH9 has an external trigger bar that is closer to the Beretta 92 series than anything from S&W.
    It wasn’t that long ago that people were complaining that an exposed trigger bar was just asking for trouble on a military weapon.
    I hate to say it, but the Beretta 92/M9 series of pistols has proven that to be false.
    What the Lionheart LH9 is a logical improvement of the South Korean military pistol.
    Remember even the best of John Browning’s designs went through a series of designs and improvements before they reached the point of being the classics we know.
