With a full mag, the 26 will weigh a decent amount more, though. I've always found that the thickness of the butt of the gun is the hardest part to conceal well (IWB, anyway), so even a minor difference in measurement might be a large difference in the ability to deep-conceal. Hopefully this will end up retailing for around what the LC9 does (maybe around $350?), which could be an advantage.
It also sounds like it only comes with a manual safety, which I don't like.
