That's not necessarily a guarantee. My PPS is a BA also. The test fire was done on 23 Sept. 2010. I have the "old style" slide stop and spring.This is probably common knowledge, but my BA date code has the new style spring seat.
I've decided to keep shooting (and carrying) this gun until it shows me personally that this part needs replacing. I have put about 600 rounds through it and it continues to function very well, even though some people diss the .40 cal version. Zero FTF, FTE or any other malfunctions. So far I am very pleased with my PPS.
