Just kind of curious before I go out and buy it on a whim.
I have one and it runs absolutely perfect. It is my daily carry pistol.I have ZERO qualms with putting my life in its capabilities. It has about 3500ish rounds through it and I have never had a single FTF or FTE.
Your friend needs to contact Springfield directly and have them do warranty work on the pistol. They have a 100% lifetime warranty, many times with zero questions asked. Their customer service and support is absolutely awesome.
