4) sharp edges: so?
5) tiny sights: all pocket pistols have tiny sights.
6) slide safety: i will have to agree 100% here. I hate that damn thing.

So no, it is not a perfect gun, and yes, parts of it are indeed obsolete. However, they are no more obsolete than the 1911.
It has one of the most elegant take-down systems out there, and it remains a beautifully-designed piece, if you can overlook the SmithWalther branding on the slide.
