Saw the Taurus Curve Commercial on TV 2 times tonight and it is still early. Gives me a little hope that they may be released on time.
I would consider that a good move. Those Novaks that are on my NAA Black Widow are about as low profile as it gets and they give me a GREAT sight picture. They'd be perfect on the Curve.Rumor has it they are adding sights to the final release. I have not seen any evidence of it yet.
I put absolutely no faith in electronics, especially if my life depends on it. Besides, they don't show up well in sunlight.I don't believe the slide is polymer. The low weight would have to be compensated for by a very heavy recoil spring. If they could even get it to stand up to the abuse.
But I still say this is a clever design. I think they are counting on the laser to be the primary sighting system. I could see TCP style sights on it, but nothing even slightly bigger.
