Looks like the slide from what they called the “custom” edition. Very rare.

That is correct. We had a few slides done that color and a few other colors as samples for future models. This was sold as a "Custom" R9 at a time somewhere around 2012, if memory serves me correctly guys. I liked it by the way. An "interesting" look and only a handful of those were made.

Strange stuff the slide has the USA instead of the u.s.a.

The engravings have special significance to us at the shop as code to the generation of slide. Changing the Deer Park, NY from script to block lettering with no dots in between the USA signified the change of material from 17-4ph T651SS to 416SS. Add in the dots between the U.S.A. signified moving the firing pin location .002" to the left to center it on the primer of the 9mm round.

My Custom is basically a Special Forces with a green slide.  It has a black frame, black VZ grips, black barrel, and all black hardware.
