    I sent a williams back last winter, to make a long story short (as possible) I ordered one, at the time they had the external release button like a Win70's, 6 - 9 mos later my new SS floorplate arrived - now internal release style like a Weatherby or Rem, after playing with it a few minutes in my hand I notice the floorplate tails can hit the trigger guard bow causing sharp nicks in the edge of the bow.

    Called them and returned it as they just suggested I be careful closing it, when its 10 degrees & your gloved hands are numb I just close them :(

    unless they go back to the old design or update & eliminate the tails from the floorplate I will pass, just giving a heads up.
