Timing might make a difference in slide design, etc., I know, as the current SI slides do look a bit different.)
    a few things, because i do 99% of the frame work and we've never used the waffle pattern tip and my undercuts dont look like that or go that far forward, its not my pattern in regards to the areas stippled and i've never stippled right to the edge of the mag release

    People have asked me if I consider myself a good or bad person. The truth of it is, I don't know or care. I have been called both. I like to think I have saved more lives than I have ended. Either way, I can still sleep at night.

    If you are serious about carrying/running this gun for the defense of your life and lives of your loved ones, I would strongly consider the offer ShopMonkey made to have you send SI the gun and let him go through it.

    I know it’s hard to let go of a “new” thing you just got after really wanting one.

    But when you think about, you didn’t have one for years and have been okay.


    Sending the gun to SI and waiting a few more weeks will likely ensure that you can confidently keep it forever, and that it will always do exactly what you need it to do.

    Well, I didn’t make any assumptions o out your work load and the timing.

    If you can turn it around that quickly, seems like an even more generous offer and a no-brainer.
