Amen. Went to a pistol match in Canada in 1959 as a kid and a Canadian soldier let me use his in a rather primitive "commando match". I knew a little bit about them from Jeff Cooper's "Fighting Handguns" and thought it was rather an exotic piece of ordnance.
Years later I finally picked up a tangent sighted one. You're right--it's still a pretty serviceable and honest piece. Not many pistols have the character of an Inglis.
