GB Crack slide good as new!
« on: June 26, 2023, 03:42:45 PM »
I won a GB auction last week on a R9 with a cracked slide thinking id have a good parts gun.  I sent Eric a message just to check if by chance he still had any slides left tucked away.  He did and was super gracious and sold me one!!!  (Thank you) Well she's all back together and shot 2 mags without a hiccup.   It came with a super cool old tear down tool that I haven't seen one of in years.

Wow! She looks just fine Corey. Nice work swapping the parts over to the different slide.

Glad everything worked out for you and the pistol.

Congrats on a great score!
And what a great move by Eric.  My R9S (stippled by Ned Christensen) is my favorite pocket carry gun!
So sad they aren't still being made.
