I'm so tempted to buy a milspec that I saw in a store. My biggest concern is the slide cracking issue which I've heard of so many times in this forum.

Any new occurences that you guys have heard of?

Is this phenomenon limited to the stainless models only? Has this issue been resolved by SA?

Thanks in advance.

Slide cracking!?! Somehow managed to miss that one.

It was with a small batch of slides that did not get properly heat treated. I haven't heard about an occurence of slide breakage since that initial event.

Also, it was limited to stainless slides as far as I know.

Yup, they were stainless slides, and it was between 2 to 3 years ago.

I think it's safe to say 'problem solved' :) .
