The price seems reasonable. There should be some 350,000 Universal carbines out there running this design, so there is a possible market for it. There were two versions of this slide....a round-barrel and a square-barrel and both are offered.

I bought one of these puppies and replaced the factory slide strictly as a precautionary measure. Fit perfectly as is ... without modification.

Hello: Once again I'm new to the forum. I have also purchased one of these slides. Actually love it, has more meat on it at the stamped out area of known failure compared to the one replaced. I did have to clearance the wood just a tad because the weight was just a little bigger. No biggie.
It did break on me after about 1,000rds. Right where the slide meets the block. Snapped clean, so alignment was no problem. It was clear to see that the penetration of the weld was not that good.
I just put it back together since it was a clean break with a good vice-grip. V'd the breakage deeper, drilled two holes and beveled from the block side. Per say a good spot weld. Had a pro weld it.
Did a great job with no clean up needed. Awesome penetration.
It works great, and yes, I will purchase another while still available.
I will though, take the preventive step to perform the spot welds. It is just another way of making aftermarket better in my mind.
For all Universal fans looking for a hard to find slide. It's good, but I suggest making the extra move on the weld.

Did you contact BKHose to let them know there were weld problems with their product? You can email him at: bkhose@dslextreme.com. The guy's name is Bruce.

Personally I've put many more that a 1,000 rounds thru my Universal with this slide with zero problems ... but that doesn't help you of course.

Could simply be a one-off.
