The front module is clearly milled out of hardened steel and the extra rail surface contact area is fantastic - but born / bred out of the Gen 1's lack of metal rear rails. The Gen2's removed the polymer rail setup from the Gen1's but they skimped on the rear rail module by stamping / folding it instead of milling it like they did with the front rail block.

I've had to deburr the front face of the rear rail module on all four where the trigger bar rubs the front of the rail module. It was causing, identically, all four builds to reset the trigger upon racking the slide, but if you held the trigger down and released the slide, the trigger would not reset. Dremel + 1 minute on each and they all work well, but it's confusing why they'd R&R these fantastic front rail modules and then cheap out on the rears.
