This is a service grade. I debated between service grade and field grade based on many of the pictures posted on the CMP forum. I was a little worried with a service grade that I would get a replacement slide. The restriction to one per lifetime does not let you get another one like you can with a M1 Garand. Overall I am happy with the pistol.
