    I got a new pocket pal today and have questions

    Well guys I got a new pocket pal today and its my S&W 340PD this thing is sweet,I think its a really cool gun in general. I fired a variety of loads today including 130gr federal hydrashocks,125gr Remington golden sabers,Speer's "short barrel" 135gr gold dots and some .38 special FMJ target ammo.

    I had good accuracy and easily controlled follow up shots with the speer and Remington loads. I also had some of speers .38 special +p short barrel loads and these to me had considerably less recoil than their .357 brothern,I've read about how some say that the .357 SB loads are nothing more than hot .38's but these seemed to have a bit more punch behind them. None of the above mentioned loads exhibited any crimp jump.

    My questions are how do I remove the powder residue marks from the sides of the cylinder? I gave it a quick wipe down with breakfree CLP but didn't want to use hoppes #9 or anything on the Ti cylinder without asking here first. I don't mind the marks on the front of the cylinder but the ones on the side bother me for some reason.

    Also is it a given that all the Titanium cylinders will have problems,are they inherently flawed in their design? Or are the issues you read about with titanium cylinders because owners of these guns don't adhere to the warnings regarding abrasives and firing ammo outside of the recommended parameters?
    ant here are a few pics and thanks for any help guys.

    I love it! Try a 'pink pearl' eraser on those powder burns. It should come off with very little effort.

    I don't have the exact same marks on my 637, but the eraser works wonders on 'racoon eyes', where nothing else worked (scrubbing, Hoppes, Gunzilla, etc..). I've experimented with fancy draftsman erasers, and found that nothing but 'pink pearl' works. Let's see how this works for 1911luver and Diablo?

    There is a product called Blue Wonder that cleans guns really well. It also removes rust without damaging the factory finish. It might work on those burns.
    Brownells also sells a treated cloth that removes those burns from stainless, might also work on Ti.

    Thanks guys I really love this gun I had an M&P 340 that I was forced to sell due to money issues at the time. I'd intended to buy another M&P 340 to replace the one I sold,however this little gem fell into my lap at a price to good to resist.

    I'll try those "pink pearl" erasers,where do I buy them from?

    Those are the traditional pink erasers that are usually on the top of #2 pencils. They're probably in a desk drawer in your house. If not, Wallyworld will have them.

    If it works, I can't take any credit. Another member here turned me on to this solution. I was shocked when it worked.

    If it doesn't do the trick, many people on this forum swear by Gunzilla (see the ever-growing thread). It's apparently benign enough to drink (haven't tried drinking it myself...), so is probably fine to use on a Ti cylinder.
