<lol>, you serious?

25 rounds through it and you love it?

Of course it is going to flake and peel, you have put 24 more rounds through it than the manufacturer ever expected.

I can say that mine doesn't flake. I haven't noticed any problems whatsoever with the finish on mine. I can say that their is at least 4000 through mine and I got it used. Well the new slide has about 1800 rnds through it.

I would call Phoenix and see what they can do. Like I said I got mine used and the SS slide cracked at the range one day. I called the company and they said ship it to them. I shipped the pistol and about 3 weeks later I recieved the gun with a new slide, they buffed out some scratches, new grip panels, a magazine gun lock, owners manual, and a new 10rnd mag. No cost except for the original shipping to the company. Not bad for a used pistol I paid $75 for.

I will say that I love mine. It is extremely accurate for the size gun that it is. It is reliable as well(as long as you don't use Federal HP's).

WHAT KIND OF PROBLEM DO YOU HAVE WITH FEDERAL HP'S VA-gunnut?THANKS FOR YOUR INPUT.

I get lots of split cases and failure to ejects with this type ammo. I can use Winchester with no problems and it absolutely loves Remington Golden Bullets. The Golden Bullets work so well that when I found them at 550 for $9 I picked up 10 more bricks.
