    Hi,
    I have a model 19 Gen3(Austrian version). It is a 2009 model I bought used a year ago. I just noticed that from about the front of the trigger guard out to the front of the polymer frame that it is bowed upwards. The front of the frame lightly rubs on the bottom of the front of the slide. Is this common or an anomoly on the polymer frames? Anyone else experience this bowing? Thanks.

    It’s the way the polymer cooled when it was pulled from the mold.
    Some are worse than others however there seems to be a point that is generally offensive to everyone that sees it. I am surprised factory lets some of these go.
