I just bought a used G23. It may have been a mistake, but I don't think so. The guy had the barrel polished, and when he started taking the finish off the slide to polish it too, he noticed what looks like a crack running the entire length of the slide. He didn't want to both with it, so he sold it. And, for some reason, he drilled two holes, one on each side of the front sight. Porting? I don't know. It's missing the front sight. He etched a Celtic cross on the top. The slide is a mess.
All this to ask, does anyone have, or know of, a used G23 slide that I can buy without spending the $200 for a new Lone Wolf? I don't care about stainless steel, this will be my every day carry. Do used slides even exist? I would imagine that Lone Wolf exists for a reason. People replace their slides. What do they do with their old one? Would any of them consider selling one to me?
