I recently purchased a brand new SD9 VE and when I opened it up at home , I noticed that there were no markings on either side of the slide. Has anyone seen this? Does it make the gun more valuable?
I would just keep it and shoot it. The slide isn't the firearm anyhow its the frame that is considered the firearm by the atf. The frame should have a serial number on it which means it should be good to go. I don't like that stupid stamping on the slide anyhow.Do you think I should send it back to get it corrected?
We did inspect it at the store, but didn't realize that it should have the markings on it until viewing YouTube videos about the gun, and all of them had the wording on them.My Kimber full size 45 ACP is like that as well. Of course when I replace the slid e with the 22LR slide, that one is marked.
I'd forget about it and move on.
I find it interesting that you waited to get home before unboxing it and checking it for no issues. Not something I do. I always open up any firearm at the store and inspect it for proper operation.
