Just picked my new G2 from a local dealer yesterday. Had an older Contender frame that was discussed earlier here that had started to open when firing. Turned out the frame was from 1968 and was worn to the point of the lug area being rounded. TC deemed it to be "un repairable and un safe". They replaced it with a BRAND NEW G2!! What a great company! I am really impressed with the fit and finish of the new G2. Mounted the .44 Mag barrel on it and we shall see!
