Here it is. One of two handguns I'm feeling a need to put hands on. The other is a flat latch in need of shim and blue but it will be second. Firstest in the gate is the slide for this semiauto. Frame anodizing is in fair shape, better than 90% so I intend to leave it alone....I'm not interested in coatings and paint as they will wear away much faster than the anodizing and given this is a mid 80's handgun, it still looking pretty good in blackened alloy. But the slide and controls are suffering from thin blue and turning plumb in places. There's a couple of scuffs and dings that could stand polishing out so, for sure, the top half gets rust blued....after a function test. The guts look great...no signs of happy boys with files or stones and nothing in the way of galling between the steel slide and the alloy frame. The action is slick, trigger is long but easy to stage and breaks clean. I suspect I should pop for new springs from Wolff.....these factory springs are a mite old now. But, everything passes safety and function checks, including the halfnotch recall so I don't expect any surprizes at the range...other than going from double action first shot to single action second and the decocker. But, if the granddaughter likes this one, its hers at 21 years...so.... A rust blue on the top end and controls. Clean up dings/dents in slide and rear sight. Respring as needed. Perhaps groove the flat top of the slide and the rear face as well to eliminate glare. For now, even though I immediately got them dirty, the brand spankin New Old Stock Smith and Wesson grips look and fit great and certaintly better than the cracked originals.
