I have one I picked up used.(PX9115LP) Slide fit is a little loose but not rattly or anything. finish is very nice, mine eats everything. Trigger is good, about 4.5 lbs, very little creep. I actually prefer the dis-assembly vs the standard bushing setup.Don't need the c clip tool thingy. Only issue I had was the full length GR/spring assembly, dis-assembled itself mid mag. Locktite fixed that permanently.

It carries well, loaded it weighs exactly the same as my 4 inch xd with 10 rd mag. Mags have been flawless. I just wish it had front strap checkering. She gets a little slick in sweaty hands. I am as accurate with it as I am with the XD, but I have 1000's more rounds through the XD.

Good unit, I would do it again.

Did you guys bend the metal yourselves or send out for a smith, if so who did you use? thanks, the pics the guy sent me were fuxxy but he said it was a new gun, just didn't see the curve. I have to go back now.

I've had mine for about 5 years. Reliable and accurate.
