I just checked out the video on the CW 380, and at its more down to earth price I agree with you. This is going to be a nice little pocket rocket I can see in my near future. I don't know if they have released it yet, the video said in Feb or March.
I read in the press release that the slide will be manufactured in a different manner. Less machining operations in this one.The only thing different I think is the assembly pin being cast.
