The big button guns are the 102, 103, 104, 106, and 107 series guns. The take down push button in these series guns is larger in diameter than the push button on the 100 and 101 series guns.
Note the hammer letter series guns are not prone to frame cracking. The stop lug at the pivot shaft is the weak location but this failure is not so common. The springs in all High Standard pistols physically wear as they slide in the hole in the slide resulting in a reduced spring force. This in turn results in reduced spring force. IT is good practice to replace the driving spring in all High Standards periodically. Note for teh Model H-D Military, teh springs from Wolff will be long and you must shorten it for proper installation.
