NOW, I need to figure out how to get around the slide bite. I don't even think it IS the slide, but the sharp beaver tail on the Walther / S&W model. Has anyone found a solution to that?

With over 200 rds downrange with my PPK/s I have had no "bite" of any kind. That said I do have medium sized hands. I suggest a light weight glove on the shooting hand and griping the pistol lower than you have (easier said than done with the size of the grip). That way if you
get Bit the glove might protect the skin.

Best of luck

Has anyone tried to polish the beaver tail?

I think if one was so inclined and talented they could gently round the edge of the beaver tail slightly and either fix or greatly improve the issue without making a mess cosmetically. I’ll admit that I’m afraid to try it.

Yeah, I'm chicken too. I'm going to take it to my gunsmith!
