    I've never sent any of mine to anyone to inspect.I've always done that myself.The only time i've sent mine back to factory is if it's malfunctioning.

    Someone may have,but,i've never known anyone to send them to either just for inspection.

    Never had to send any gun back or have it inspected by a gunsmith.

    As has already been said, you don't need to send your gun out to the factory or a smith for maintenance unless something has gone horribly wrong.

    Regular maintenance can be performed by the end-user on every modern handgun. Know your breakage parts and springs and stock them accordingly.

    Every firearm i own, the first thing i did was learn how to break it down and how it operates.I want to be able to inspect my own firearms.Now you can go to youtube,DC,someone who knows,or whoever it may be.Ask,learn,and do it yourself.

    This is why I love my 1911, I detail strip it and clean it evey 3,000 rounds and inspect everything. I have taken two pistol's to smith's to look at as I felt didn't have the tool's/information to do it myself and they didn't feel right. That being said, if you are going to a smith then shop around and find a knowledgable one. If you live in an area where they just aren't around contact the manufatuer, they will be glad to assit you and inspect and fix there pistols. Ensure you totally understand the proper shipping and charges if any. typically the "average" shooter doesn't have to worry about it, but when you hit the 5,000 round mark, I feel if you don't have the knowledge then have it "tuned up".

    Just send it to me, I'll service it. Of course it may take a few years to get it back to you.
