Steyr L-Series Pistol

I have always been intrigued by the Steyr pistols due to their low bore axis as well as their fairly smooth - for a striker-fired pistol - triggers. They have now launched the new L Series which is a full size service pistol available in 9mm and .40 S&W.

In the video below from Tactical Life, you can see some of the details of this new pistol. The only thing that I object to is the keyed lock on the slide. Checking the M and S Series, I see they both have it. It seems to me to be superfluous and just one more thing to break.
