Anyone have an early 2008 like this one I picked up? I am curious to see if anyone else doesn't have a Stainless Barrel bushing. Gun runs great, I had one and it was identical minus that and the barrel was marked differently. Grips came in, figured I toss a couple photos up. You guys chime in, something younger than number 30 I LOVE THESE GRIPS ok, now, the valor is number 23, from 08. Not a spot on it until My stupid ass thought something was stuck on the side, it was but when I got it to move it left a small scratch. not deep at all, but it's duty coat so it's not going anywhere. Either way I intend on carrying this one and unless something really bad happens I won't sell it a 2nd time! Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
