Bind in slide?

Gentlemen:

Took subject pistol to gunsmith who noticed that ejector is digging in to the barrel at the forcing cone. Suggested solution is to de-burr the area and live with it.

Holser options

Gentlemen:

You can get a custom, in the pants holster by arranging to take the weapon to your favorite shoe repairman and asking him to sew one up. Perhaps he could even fancier!!!

Bind in slide?

P64.

Just read your note and tried it with my gun.

Does the same thing.

Noticed the exterior of the forcing cone is extremely rough. Damage? Factory?
Too much power in Sellier and Beloit?



Slide seems to be hanging up there.

Tunnelrat

Don't want to give out this elderly lgentlemen's name but he was the firearms instructor and I believe did some armorer type work for the state police.

He participated in handgun competition for years and is a bigtime gun collector.

He has been my S&W mentor for years.
