Got the 40 shield back today from smith. Looks like most of the parts on the top of the gun were replaced. Looked at paperwork and got rid of it. Want to make sure I don't get anything from Massachusetts. Hopefully when the 40 mph winds die down I can get it out to the range.
With all my chores done and getting a little stir crazy I took the 40 cal shield and took a quick trip up to the mountain. I wanted to make sure the gun was actually working. Fired 100 rounds and had no problems! Gun worked as advertised. Now I just need to wait until everything opens up and get some night sights installed on this thing and it will be ready to go. I find that night sights really come in handy these days for me. Now I can say i'm truly happy with my purchase.
