A couple of months ago I bought a used 995 classic of which I replaced the monkey stock with a TS one. However, I don't recall seeing a barrel band when I received the stock from MoM. I bring this up after reviewing a couple of youtube videos that clearly show a barrel band that fits just forward of the recoil spring and slide assembly. Is it unsafe to fire the weapon without the band? Okay, I'll admit that I did fire it and I still have all my body parts.
