As for the slide refinishing it is not all that difficult but the entire slide should be taken apart to be done right including the extractor. There are various companies that make coatings that can be used. Also you must make sure there are no contaminates on the slide. I oxide blast all of mine prior to coating after complete disassembly.
And yes lap tops are a pain to type on. The keys are too close.

The mag well cut outs are one of my now much copied designs from many years ago. They are for just what was said above. Stripping stuck mags. I and the TDI staff teach to rip mags all the time. It is one of the things that is a sure thing that way. So no matter if a glove, lower palm, your not vertical or anything else gets in the way, you know the mag is coming out even for a plain old mag change. If done right it adds no real time.
As for the .40 no love here. It is caliber that punishes the gun more, costs more to shoot. recoils more and gives no real performance advantage. I have been involved with studies on this and kept track of this for many years. And it still comes down to caliber does not matter any amount when you are comparing real fighting calibers. Many who shoot the 40 could not handle it well at all if they were injured or exhausted. I'll keep my 9mm or 45acp. They run forever without punishing guns or shooters. If you like it and can shoot it well that's great. But i have never seen anyone yet who did not shoot a 9mm better. And better is ...well... better.
