I apologize for the incomplete profile, I'll fix that asap! I'm just a bit south of Houston, TX and I'd be willing to bet it feels hot/humid like much of Central America during this time of year! This pistol has been stored inside of my safe which sits inside of a climate controlled home for 99.9% of the time that I've owned it, and I've owned it since it was new. The interchangeable back straps have ALWAYS been inside of the original purchase case, while the pistol has been primarily stored outside of that case but in the same gun safe. I'm hesitant to part with it because I'm not the type to potentially pass on a problem to anyone without doing further research, hence my participation and interest in this thread. I'll upload photos this evening as soon as I can get the girls to bed, and I suppose I should start a formal introduction thread seeing as this is my 2nd post in 5 years. I haven't noticed any other plastic/polymer discoloration or degradation on anything else in the safe...ever.Jetcycles, where do you live? Is it a climate like Central America?
The MR9 inserts are internally different and would had to have been modified to work. So that's probably okay.Thanks Handy:
Yes, I bought 2 pieces (unce for each gun, my own and my pal's) from Earl repair Service thru a good friend, a bit pricey but good service.
I hope the new parts last forever of until the end of time, whichever comes first.
I understand Magnum research also have them at even a lower price, but I had already ordered mine.
The new parts are a bit more opaque then the older, and they have a little different stipling, too.
