After 9 months of 4-5 carry outings per week, with twice a month range trips thrown in to perfect the appendix presentation, my Ti framed S&W airweight finish is holding up amazingly well. The gun has consumed approximately 500 rounds of 158 grain SWC at normal 38 Special velocity, along with a couple hundred +P carry rounds. Frame wear from the draws is minimum, I've seen no evidence of top strap issues and the Kydex doesn't appear to be making much of a dent in whatever exterior finish the gun came with. The fiber front sight has lost a bit of its brillance - I'm up for changing that to an XS Big Dot or something of that nature at first encounter. The fiber works great right down to 'some light'; it glares out as bad as anything I've every used with a flashlight and it's nearly invisible in no light conditions. My eyes are not young, that's a factor. Still, I can't give fiber a big plus when the light starts falling. The only holster I have used is from Eclipse Holsters, a woman-owned company which I find makes good stuff. I'm on the lookout for a leather IWB rig for the gun. The grip finish has suffered, it rides next to skin during the summer outings walking the dog, on a road bike or when running. With a layer of cloth between gun and skin rest of the year. No finish on earth is going to hold up on wood. The grips themselves are fine - Craig Spegel's boot grips. Questions are welcomed.
