Fired one of the new parkerized loaded models this weekend. I ordered a few of these guns to sell and ended up selling one to a friend of mine. These are the guns with Novak night sights, dehorning, etc. Really nice gun, good deal for the money. I like it better than my '99 stainless loaded model, the dehorning helps, it could still use more. The trigger pull was wonderful! Very crisp, broke clean. No malfunctions of any kind troughout the 250 rounds fired. However, when comparing the 2001 guns I noticed one gun came with a serrated MSH and the other had a checkered MSH. Not that big of a deal, but anyone know why?
