S&W Performance Center & Hand getting rubbed raw?
I am thinking about sending off my S&W 642 to the Smith and Wesson Performance Center Gunsmith to get their Master Revolver Action Job. I was just wondering if anyone else has had this done to their revolver or had any experience with the S&W gunsmiths. Also what do you guys think about what they would do?
Master Revolver Action Job:
* Trigger Stop
* Chamfer Charge Holes
* Polish Rebound Spring, Hammer Stud Boss and Yoke Barrel Bosses
* Detail Lockwork Surfaces
* Stone Hammer and Trigger Contact Areas
* Test Fire for Function
Also, does anyone else have this problem?:
The inside of my thumb gets rubbed raw after about 30 shots or so. The biggest problem is right where the rubber grip rounds the corner of the frame. I was thinking that maybe putting some wood grips on it might help as they wont be as sticky and grab on to my skin like the rubber ones do. This has happened both time I've shot my new 642, and of course this last time it didn't take much since it wasn't completely healed up from the first time it happened. I had a band-aid on when I went to the range but it didn't even stay on long enough to get in there and shoot. Maybe I should keep a few in my bag? Anyone else have anything like this happen to them?
