Had the slide peening issue with my Hard Chrome P3AT. I purchased this one back in January Serial # J5B** and didn't actually get it out to shoot it until May. I was reading some of the posts about the thin metal around some of the guide rod holes and checked it before shooting, sure enough, It was paper thin. After about 200rnds, the hole started getting oblonged and opening up. Dissassembled & sent back only the slide in the Begining of June.

Got it back today as a slide, barrel, guide-rod combo. Now I have two barrels and the slide has 4 times the metal at the guide rod hole that it used to have.

Overall, I'm pretty happy with the experience.

This may be the only hard chrome peener we've seen, or one of very few.

Just be prepared, When I spoke to them a week or two ago, they said they were about 4 weeks out on slides. And mine took about that long.

I don't know if that number was specifically for Hard Chrome or just their standard response for everything.
