    Either the THB post is incorrect about the measurements, or it really is the same size as a Shield.

    Waitaminute...

    Hmm:

    Actually, it looks similar in size to a CCO; which is a nice carry package.

    I've said it before and I'll say it again, this R51 is potentially great but it needs more shark!

    Hmm, close to the Shield, but not quite. 3oz heavier and marginally larger in length and height.
