    I called today, they said it should be done in about two weeks.
    So I had to go out and buy Another one with the Stainless slide (punishment for me having to wait so long.)
    I will post when I get it back.

    .I love the Robar Texture Treatment they put on this.

    sorry if pics are fuzzy I just worked 16 hrs then got woke up by the big white truck only to go back to work in 2 1/2 hrs for another 16 after an hour nap.

    notice how they left my stainless guide rod alone.

    I like that extended tail and the coating! Did they bond some new material or re-badge a new frame with the serial? Is the hi ride significant or just noticeable? Looks good.

    Looks good, how does it feel? I had the grip tape put on mine and can feel the difference!

    well...
    If you look at the last picture on this page both of these frames were identical, being that they are both XDm- 40's.
    The frame on the left if you look hard enough, I got pissed off and started sanding with some pretty aggressive emery cloth. Look where the indentation for your thumb, above the mag release. I sanded pretty heavy and knocked down some of the harshness of the grip as well. Also look close directly under the slide stop, I did not get around to remove it and the sand marks showed up in the picture.
    You would never tell with the naked eye.
    But the frame still rubbed on my thumb knuckle after about a few hundred rounds.
    The difference is day and night, it actually fells more like a traditional beaver tail. (significant improvement)
    I'm going to try to shoot it early next week.
    I definitely would not hesitate in sending my other ones in for the same treatment. Springfield Custom has once again impressed me beyond my expectations.
    Springer Precision needs to do the snake skin on my stainless with mag well & trigger job.

    Sorry, what happened? Was the front sight misaligned, or did it break off?
