Micro9 My warranty might be voided

I had a little custom work done to my desert tan slide. The rear grip was machined for better grip.The top was laser cut with 11 hex holes. Barrel and guide rod were polished.Color was changed to midnight bronze cerakote. I wanted something different then all the other micro9 pistols out there.

Looks good, nothing wrong with adding your own touch to your Micro 9.

Mission accomplished, I think it looks great. Did you do it yourself or have it done?

Did you take a wee bit of spring out to compensate for the weight ?

Very nice... If I had to always worry about warranties, I'd also have plain vanilla guns. First thing I do just like you would do to a Harley. Rip it apart and make it mine.
Who did the work?

Well, I know what it's like to lay in bed tossing and turning worrying about things like the warranty being voided on your new pistol so I'll tell you what I'll do. I'll trade you my bone stock Micro9 for your flawed pistol. This pistol is still under "full warranty" within only maybe 100 rounds down the pipe.
Why would I do this for a complete stranger you might ask? Well that's just the kind of guy I am.
