    S&W BG back from factory repairs

    Ran 3 mags they it when I got it home. Runs like a top.

    Not sure what they did to it, but the frame looks new.

    Did they not send an invoice, showing what was repaired?

    Did they upgrade the mag catch to steel?

    Nope. They haven’t done it the last 2 products I sent back for work.

    I would think if the frame was new, it would have a new S/N.

    I sent an HK p2000sk back for repair, got it back in a week and a half. They didn't include in the package what they did to it. I had to call the mothership and talk to the tech guy that fixed it.

    I just looked at it more closely. It appears to be metal.
