I for one don't want to see slotted screws on anything. The first thing to go on my 1911s is the slotted screws, a good allen head is much better than a slotted screw could ever hope to be.
  The problem with the screws that come with the R9 is they have an extremely small allen head (1/16") and the stainless is softer than an alloy steel.

The old screws often stripped out when the threads oxidized to the frame. I would rather see slotted to keep this from happening, but I could go for a large torx head screw as well. Anything would be better than the tiny allen head screws of the R9.

John is right. I have seen a lot of slotted screws that were all but destroyed by cheap screwdrivers and equally bad screw drivers.

That's why you need to use the correct screwdriver size, just like with any other type of bit.

Or, better yet, use a bushing. I don't think the R9 uses a bushing and that is part of the problem. Could someone confirm or deny this? It's been a long time since I sold my R9.

No bushing, just threaded holes in the Aluminum frame. :o

dave606. Welcome to the Forum.  The R45 in itself is not a secret; just when it's coming out.

Yep!  I'm trying to get up the courage to try that with a new ZR1 Corvette.  The wife is totally against it.  The salesperson said that's what he did and it worked.  Naturally, he would say that!  I'm working on it, though.    :)

Roger that Mr. S.
I concur, statement has merit.  :D

Edit:  Hmmm, I was just thinking that Wifey has been trying to confiscate my PM9 for herself.  "Don't be mad, Honey.  Here, you can have that Kahr that you wanted."
