I keep hearing about the bad or gritty triggers on some P97s but guess I was lucky. Although the double action pull on mine does stack just a bit at the end sorta like Colt revolvers it's not bad at all. The single action pull has a very small amout of creep after you take up the slack but is about as light as I would want is a self defence gun. Some people don't like the slack before the trigger engages but I don't even notice that anymore although it did bother me at first in my older P85. I only own the two P series pistols but with each one the triggers have gotten better with use.

years back i traded into a s&w 457. Thought it perfect as had decent accuracy, bobbed hammer, thin, and lightweight--about ideal for ccw. But the lack of an ambi safety (i suffer the left hand curse),the presence of a mag disconnect, and especially more than anything else the smith and wesson sell-out to clinton around that time resulted in my trading it off.
My attitude towards s&w has since calmed considerably and if i came across another used 457 today i would probably jump on it at the right price and see if smith could install an ambi safety on it or make it dbl action only (funds permitted). That weapon has potential but it is smith's ugly duckling.

Sheepdog,
have you checked cdnn?

www.cdnninvestments.com

download the catalog and they show s&w 4566TSW models and the 4513 as well as a few other smith items.

I've never seen a round trigger guard on one-mine was square-ultra-reliable Chippies carried 4506 for years...don't know what they went to...I'd say they're close to P90 quality-just bigger and more fragile...
