Sounds good. You've got the same idea I had....I wanted better sights on two of mine firstly and secondly wanted a quick change slide for the TCM instead of doing barrel swaps. Got a couple full length guide rod kits off ebay to help out.
My slides came in yesterday and I just fiddled with them for a few minutes last night. The 9mm slide will need just a hair taken off the inside of the bottom right rail and I think it'll go on the TCM no problem. The 45 slide fit great on my XT22/45 with the barrel. Didn't do any parts installation though.
The XT22/45 already has a fully assembled slide but the sights stink. Can't do anything about the 22 right now but at least the 45 will be set up better.
Wanted better sights on the TCM so had already ordered a Fusion fiber front. Well, when I saw the slide sale and got those, found out Fusion was having 15% off the same time so I decided to do like you and do an upgraded dedicated 9mm slide. From Fusion, got a 9mm extractor, firing pin/spring/stop, barrel link and pin, and one of their ultra match grade Clark ramped and threaded barrels. Hoping the 2017 Hearing Act passes....The barrel was a splurge and threading added $50 but the total for the parts still only came to $250 with the sale.
