    $5K buys a lot of 45 ammo and training -- all of which will make you a much better shooter than writing on a slide.
    Hokey religions and ancient weapons are no match for a good blaster at your side, kid.

    There are two blemishes on this Slide. I contacted the seller for brighter pictures and I saw the blemishes. Not worth it for me.

    Everything in the HK world is expensive, because HKs are expensive. If you're buying an $800 USP instead of a $400 glock, you're already selecting for higher-income people for whom a $400 price difference doesn't matter to them. Add rarity & cool factor of some markings, and prices get wild.

    Blast an Mk23 slide.. removes the serials and get a finish put on that is superior to the "maritime" finish.. and all clocks in at much less of a price. But it doesn't have the "correct" markings. Lets be honest, that's what we're paying for, really with these things.

    And Hey - I'm not trying to crap on the slide - not at all. Like I said, I wouldn't mind having one. And I get the OCD factor of wanting the markings "correct" -- paid a lot of dough for a rewelded G36 with real markings and all German parts. Could have saved a bunch by converting a SL8. Or building a T36.

    i totally get what you're saying in regards to the OCD factor of it having the "correct" markings but for collectors like me sometimes you're just happy with what is available to you. HK made these as part kits for the actual USSOCOM pistol so obviously they didn't put the serials on them. you can actually send this slide and your receiver to HK germany and they will make you an all matching USSOCOM complete pistol with matching numbers if you are really hardcore about being "correct".

    B” in circle on military barrels and frames:

    a) proof marking (“acceptance stamp”)- identifies part as mil-spec (i.e., confirmed by testing as meeting U.S. military specification per the task order, as agreed upon in the terms of the contract award)
    b) bin marking- assists supply-side personnel to quickly identify the part as for the mil-spec pistol (MK23) and as a replacement part

    Reliable feeding with the military ball .45 FMJ ammunition, and the +P 185 grain JHP rounds!!!

    Allow me to rephrase--- the actual O-ring did not come with the 40 kits--- the O-ring cutout is there!!!
