I have been carrying a 31 for the past month, although I have many earlier models, P, Reg, Classic Um, 25 etc, etc. I have no complaints about my 31. I know there are some legitimate issues some people have had. My question is about timing. Every feature on the 31 Chris introduced to the line. Did he have ANY hand in the final approval of production of the 31? Did he hate it, love it or not care at all? Does anyone know?
