As stated above, how do I know I have the new-type M9 PTP with the fixed locking block? Pics would be immensely helpful.

Maybe I'm being a bit daft here... couldn't find the answer. Wondering if I have the new PTP (supposedly with fixed locking block) or old PTP (with apparently fragile locking block). I know it's a PTP, not the regular version M9.

The PTP while has not changed in principle design, has evolved a bunch of adaptations multiple times to fit the needs of the current demand.

The current has thicker flanges on the locking block, ramped locking slot within the slide, and the ramped locking slot within the frame.  There is more, but those are the most obvious as the original PTP has thin, squared, or rounded edges.
