I noticed on my wifes new pink Pt111 the feed ramp has a small (1/8th of an inch) notch out of it on the left side I believe, her old DAO 2nd gen PT111 did not have this, does anyone else with a 3rd gen have a notch in there feed ramp?

Haven't seen that on one yet. Is it a crack, split, machined or something else? Pics?

It looks to be machined like that. Her old 2nd Gen Pt111 did not have it and my 3rd Gen Pt145 doesnt have it either, Ill see if I can get a picture of it with my crappy camera to come out...

best I could do, If you look at the bottom left it has a sharp notch cut out, I know the pictures suck but maybe you can get an idea






Notice the shadow on the left

Mine is not like that, but on the upper left side you can see a very rough area(if the picture post). Plus the feed part of my ramp is somewhat to the right.

That is a bit odd looking, but if it looks machined and it works there must not be a problem. Although I am curious why it is there?

I have an Blued slide 3rd Gen. PT111 and it looks just like yours with the small notch on left side of feed ramp. I have had not mechanical malfunctions (knock on wood) so far. It also looks machined and part of the design of the feed ramp.

Ok Now I am damn curious... Why some are notched on the 3rd gen and some are not. Could this be a small change along with something else we havnt noticed to make this a 4th gen PT111?
