Wow. I wonder if S&W's constant Johnny Cut Corners design changes are catching up with them.
Euc........you should have seen this gun...........It was almost as the timing was waaay off, and I took a feeler gage between the forcing cone to the cylinder/chambers, and it measure d.0015 (one thousanth and 5 tenths) This was not consistand on all chambers, (they ranged between .0015 to .0035 on alternating chambers)..almost as if the cylinder was not machined or broached properly., or the cylinder wasn't bored properly to center alignment of the ejector rod. Thus making chamber alignment to the BBl, almost impossible..Euclidean said:Wow. I wonder if S&W's constant Johnny Cut Corners design changes are catching up with them.

At very least it shows some very poor QC.
I'll be interested to know if you get a report back from Smith on that very gun.
Yes........it's all over the cone (lead shavings) It's almost as if they began to fit the Bbl to the frame, and stopped. The forcing cone is not a flat surface. It's been ground on one side and not finished on the other........thus, not a flat surface in relation to the cylinder.. (kind of like taking a file, and filing off one side so that it's not at a 90 degree relation to the other flat surface it meets.. I'm going to place the gun on a pistol rest, and run a dial indicator on the cylinder, to make sure it's not out of round on the center. Timing is off, as the action binds up, particularly on every other, or two adjoining chambersBud White said:And let me ask this are you sure its shaving lead at the forcing Cone? The comps can throw some stuff back at ya not the amount this guy is claiming but some
