I think you should box it up and send it to me immediately. I'll square everything away, no charge. I don't guarantee returns, however.


I don't really think there's anything to worry about just yet. Shoot it some more and check your accuracy with several loads. Then with the weapon UNLOADED and field stripped, check your bore while it is still dirty and fouled. There will be tell-tale markings within that will (combined with your accuracy results) tell the real story.

When you are finished with these tests, send it to me anyways....

Hey, "Dirty Harry"
, since you seem to be a seasoned shooter, I have a question: Is it possible that when a barrel heats up a considerable amount (too hot to touch) that it expands enough to allow the bullet to get loose or wobble down the barrel? I wonder this because it seems to me that might cause a bullet to show incomplete rifling like gunnuts was describing. Because when my commander heats up, slide play is noticeably increased.
