Yup the rail are rough, the first 200 rds had black parkerized metal flakes all over my right forearm. Its flaking less now. I was thinking of getting FLITZ yesterday. Im probably going to do that. Ive never heard of ROBAR NP3 finish, or ROGARD. My smith will be at the shop tomorrow Ill ask him about it. It sounds cool to me .Maybe it's a rough spot on the slide rails? Think about having them polished with FLITZ. Or better yet, get a ROBAR NP3 finish done on the interior and a ROGARD exterior. The NP3 will peel off molecules as the two surfaces bear against each other.
The chamber is smooth, like glass, thanks to my smith. Ill check the bolt face when I clean the gun tomorrow.
The problem is less frequent as I shoot, so Id bet it is just breaking in. I didn't re-lube during the session, so I think that has alot to do with things. These 1911 do love lube!, and Parkerisation is a oil sponge. Still polishing her up cant hurt.
Again, tons of thanks guys!
