    Yeah, saw that abortion in my email this morning.

    I will never understand the fascination with cutting holes in slides. Removing material for lower weight, I understand, but that can be accomplished without turning your slide into Swiss cheese.

    I don’t think anything is made stronger when you burrow holes in it.

    Proper development of the 'Warrior Spirit', training and physical conditioning before 'The Event' cannot be overstated.

    If they sold a 229 slide with those features at that price I'd buy it.

    If it came with this:

    I want to get another slide for milling for an RMR. All that Swiss cheese put a screeching halt to that idea.

    No worries. Plenty of nontransparent 229 and 226 slides out there if you have the semolians.

    It looks like an expensive hooker with venereal disease.

    Is it so hard for SIG to sell their legacy 226/229 slides with neither the Romeo cuts nor the dirt collecting pockmarks? Did their Caliber X-Change kits not sell well enough? There still has to be a significant number of 40/357 226 owners who would like to be able to hit the easy button and convert their gun to 9 by purchasing a complete slide, barrel, and magazine. Sig does sell a stripped 9mm slide. I should snatch one up before they realize it is on their website without all their other "improvements".
