I thought the slides were matched to the frames? Anyway, if you're a collector, leave the gun as-is. On the other hand, if you're a shooter, Alan's little lever makes it so much easier to move the slide back, and since Alan "is" High Standard, and it's a "High Standard accessory", why not use it?

Or, better yet, just buy a new X-Series gun, with the cocking lever pre-installed.
