Really appreciate that brief review Infi-del!
I got one this morning from the family for Christmas!
G19, Remington Golden Bullet, two FTE malfs in three mags (30rds), and I'll take that percentage even with perfection as the goal. Both occured during RF drills. None during double tap or static tri-burst drills. I realize that's a lot occuring out of only three mags but had to help the wife get ready for the Christmas dinner and wanted to briefly try all skill sets before the family arrived. Excited to have the new kit, so the FTE malfs may have resulted from LWing a little (mixed drills and excited slinging .22 from a G). Weight is incredibly light due to the alloy slide.
She got me two spare mags too boot (she's trained in DP)! Plan on one for the G20 for the same reasons you present. Like you said, can't think of a better setup for the BOB!
Only concern is the inevitable indent at chamber rear due to trigger pull to remove the slide. Mfg states only DF as necessary to remove slide, not repeatedly. Well.....how many "as necessary removals" before malfs start to occur due to severe bore chamber damage from the striker? So be it, you can't have it all, buy more barrels aye!
Keep the reviews coming if anyone has more long term data.
1500 rounds is a great testimonial so far!
