    Thanks for the replies.

    Now searching online for mags. Ouch! I can't find many, and the few I see are not cheap. Matt VDW makes a valid point.

    Maybe a holster too. I'm gonna guess that a S&W 5906 holster or similar might fit it.

    Yes, I've looked at Lionheart online, and it currently shows their standard pistols as being put of stock. I've never encountered one out in the wild. That compact model looks intriguing.

    You may want to try the mags from the 4006 S&W. I have the 9mm Lionheart, and I know that the 5906 mags fit mine.

    As far as holsters- leather ones for 5906 fit mine. Alien Gear, I think, makes a shell for the lionheart. The difference is the triggerguard- the deawoo and LH have an angled corner, the S&W are rounded-- so a kydex holster will be hit or miss.

    here's a pic of mine with 17 round 5906 mag

    I've handled, never shot, a couple of these Daewoos. Seemed like well made guns with pretty good ergonomics. A nice catch you've made.

    They also made a more or less clone of the PP years ago but I never managed to get ahold of one of them.

    I'm curious to hear how it shoots. I handled one in 9mm 20 years ago and it was surprisingly accurate.

    Wow, a handsome pistol I never heard of. Let us know what you think when you take it for a walk.

    I have always liked those Daewoo pistols. Never got around to buying one.

    Played with my LH, last eve.

    The ergos are very nice. Don't know about the Daewoo, but the safety can be flicked on and off no matter what position the hammer is in. (Yes, you can carry in conditon 1 or condition 1.5 and the frame mounted safety moves in the correct direction-- down to off, up to safe...unlike the S&W 5906 which is slide mounted, up to shoot, down to decock, and no condition 1 carry which was the primary reason I got rid of mine 10 years ago).

    Both slide release and mag release (and of course safety) can be manipulated with the R thumb without changing grip on the gun.

    Yes. The safety works in the same fashion on my Daewoo. Interesting.
