How did it work out?

It was a fun exercise and nostalgic. It is very close to the gun I shot in 2012. Minus 2 parts I didn't feel like doing. 

But if I built it as more than nostalgia I'd get a gen 5.

What 2 parts?  The barrel and recoil spring and rod? 🤣

My old match gun had a titanium striker,which I did not replicate. I also had an over travel set screw in the trigger housing I did not replicate.

The Gen 3s weren’t as accurate as the 5. The janky slide lock spring could break pretty easily, deadlining the frame. The grip texture was weak sauce. The finger grooves weren’t my favorite but also weren’t deal breakers. But the biggest thing, the ejection sucked because they didn’t have the breach face cutout that started in the Gen 5.
