The S&W Shield that we should have received in the first place is about to be bestowed upon us! The new Shield model 10035 will be identical to the current Shield save for one important feature – or lack there of… It will not have a thumb safety!
This is good news for those who have waited and still pretty good news for those who have a Shield with a safety. It is the best news for all 5 of you out there who want the thumb safety because there is about to be a ton of Shields with safeties on the secondary market.
These will start shipping in mid-June.
Now they just need to get it together and throw an ambi slide stop on there! Come on S&W!!
