Well, good news is I received my new replacement Rough Rider today. Bad news is they did not swap my US flag grips onto the new one from the old one like one of the CS reps said they would do for me. Doesn't matter, actually like these grips better...feel better. The overall firearm is much better than the original one. Sights are well molded and the finish is smooth, shinny and unblemished. Hope it is a good shooter.
