    I was told another Smith did it (I hope not). Also the ejector was sticking way past the slide & frame and the recess for the slide stop was egg shape.

    Nice fix! I get the feeling that whoever did the original job was thinking, "Well, I've never done this before, but how hard could it be?" :lol:
