Thanks Mollie, that's great news about your overall experience. I, too was hoping to hear that they have a fix for the LRE. That issue is the single reason why I don't carry my XR9-S. I hope the folks at Bond come up with the solution, I think it will make a world of difference for sales.
Bond promptly replaced the cracked unlock block and the barrel with the new coated parts. They did not fix the LRE problem.
I was very pleased with the quick turnaround and the new parts that don't require the anti-seize grease. I just wish the LRE problem could be fixed.
