I'm inclined to agree. The striker block looks like the one I have from APEX. Looks like someone tried to use a stone on a dremel to polish the hole and it kept jumping out on them. They could have at least smoothed out there mistake a little, sheesh!

For all those that say it's not a new gun, wrong...I bought it new (or at least that's what Kentucky Gun Co. shipped me).

The striker block is in fact from Apex. That's how I discovered the issue after I installed it and flipped the slide over to do a striker block functions test. Did I "bubba" the hole to make it fit, no.

S&W has agreed to pay shipping for it back to their plant to inspect the gun.

If the striker block is Apex,I can't understand how it's a new from the factory gun.If you installed a new Apex block,then you need to talk to Apex or send them a photo.

Correction;The only part in the photo that comes from Apex is the striker safety,the rest is part of the slide that doesn't get changed and comes with the gun.
I still say it's not a new gun.

Well, 2 weeks ago I shipped my gun back to S&W and today it was returned to me.

Here is what I saw when I opened the case, locked back the slide and turned the gun over:



They replace the slide with a new one!

S&W said that the gouging was indeed machine marks.

S&W's customer service rocks.
