Obviously, I really hope mine is all fixed when I get it back. If not, I'll just call 'em back.

Just got her back this afternoon. I took her out to the range. I loaded the mag in the gun and pulled back the slide. It acted like it wanted to stay back but didn’t. After that, no hiccups. I shot several mags of FMJ and was very pleased. Looks like she is ready for the saddle again.

That was a fast turnaround!

I would put a few hundred rounds through it before carrying. Did you put your SS recoil rod and 13# spring back in it? I would.

What did they do to it?

Yes, I put those parts back in including my take down pin. They said they replaced the entire slide assembly and barrel.

One word of advice with these tiny pocket pistols (all except Kahr) is you want to slingshot that slide HARD, like you're trying to hurt it. You won't and the round will chamber fully and you'll be good to go.

No babying it. Rack that sucker like you mean it.

Mine sometimes does that. Maybe it's because the spring looks like it came out of retractable ball point pen. Smile

Cooters and cowboy boots have a break-in period. Pistols should not.

My Les Baer 1911 .45ACP wadcutter came with instructions to break it in with 500 rounds. It was such a tight fit between slide and frame. Functioned just fine after that. I have close to 3K through it now.

"Muffs and mitts" if you want something even snappier, while still maintaining the alliteration.

The alliteration is key.

So far so good. Thanks for asking. It feels like the trigger is totally different in a great way.

This thread is cracking me up!
