Thanks for the info. I'm considering stripping my gun to send the individual small parts in to get refinished by CCR. (trigger, takedown lever, backstrap safety, and mag release) in addition to the slide. If I have enough courage to do it, it will save me $20 disassembly and $10 shipping, plus the knowledge of knowing what makes my gun work.
I feel somewhat confident on everything but the Mag release. Any pictures would be helpful.
