    Hey guys


    I've owned quite a few firearms over the past 25 years, but don't remember ever seeing anything like what's pictured below.

    I apologize for the lousy phone picture, but hopefully you'll see what I see - serrations (for lack of a better word) in the lands and grooves.

    Is it crappy workmanship?

    Those are oranges, not to be compared to apples. You're welcome!

    Looks like chatter marks. What kind of pistol? I've never seen anyone run a slide without ball cuts on a frame that doesn't have a full dust cover.

    I had a matched set back in the mid 80's, neither had that problem. But the springs were recoil were junk.
    Should have kept them, only cost $400 for the set but like many, when needing funds trumps being really happy to have lots of guns....:p

    Jim

    Did either of yours have extraction issues?

    Thanks

    Yes, that's what I was getting at, the springs were too weak to extract effectively. The store owner said they were notorious for this but I bought them anyways & liked them when they worked right. I remember one day I was plinkin cans at 100 yds with the one that was the better of the two (not every time but was kickin up dirt right around them regularly).

    Same issue - Off to find a spring that's compatible!

    Would love for this gun to actually work!

    The circumferential lines on the lands are tool marks from the reaming operation when they finished the bore prior to rifling.
