Same as kashton. I couldn't be happier with my MK40 Elite '03. Even my FFL was drooling over it. But more important than looks, it's rock solid reliable. 350 rounds so far and not a hiccup - CCI Blazer 165 and 180 grain, Federal 180 grain (cheap ammo), Winchester Law Enforcement ammo, and expensive defense ammos. It is flawless no matter what I feed it. After the first 200 rounds it is now dead accurate, even at 30 and 50'. Learning the long DAO trigger is key and will take you 200 rounds to learn well.The MK40 rocks. I just bought one early this month and have never owned a better pistol for CCW! It is dead accurate and extremely reliable. It is exceptionally well made and very small so it conceals easily with a good belt to hold up the weight, it is pretty heavy but it makes it a solid gun. I love mine. I bought the Elite 2003 model.
