I think you're right with the slide refinish. The import marking (below the ejection port in this pistol) looks like it was covered over with an aftermarket finish. Did the commemorative 2000 pistols have the import marking in this location?I would say barrel and frame are from the commemorative 2000 gun
Slide just regular
Or somebody refinished the slide
But there serial pattern is for sure from the 2000 year commemorative
Good eye, I never noticed it has a slight crack showing. Where can i get a spare slide plate? Earl? Is it the same slide plate gen1-3, 9mm/40sw?Pay attention to that slide plate. I'm not 100% sure, but it looks like it is cracked in that picture. That holds the striker assembly in the slide, which moves violently every time the pistol is fired. I'd want to be 100% sure that it wasn't cracked before firing it. I certainly wouldn't risk carrying it, and/or being in a position to fire it without eye protection.
While it is not as important in regards to function, I'd swap the cracked backstrap as well.
