My buddy and I bought the same pistol at the same time. We've both had them for about a year, and we hook up at the range once a month, and engage in some one-upmanship. So I break mine out, but he pulls out a 1911. I give him the "WTF", and he explains that the polymer portion of his started peeling apart in layers, mostly in areas where he had skin to plastic contact. Mine, the identical pistol, is in fine shape. If anything, it seems to have picked up a sheen, and lustre, as though I had sprayed it with some glossy Armor-All. What gives?
