Problem with Storm Lake barrel for G23...
I posted this on the "smithing" forum, but got no response- maybe that was the wrong forum to post it to so I'm posting it here:
Replaced my factory G23 barrel with a Storm Lake. Now I am having A LOT of misfires with certain ammo- UMC 180gr fmj flat nose and Fiocchi 165gr fmj flat nose primarily. I am getting the click but not the boom (light strikes) on about 3-5 rounds per magazine. And I get some stove pipes as well, but not as often as that unnerving click. When I put the factory barrel back in, no problems at all with these rounds. What gives? Defective barrel? Or do the tighter tolerances of of the SL barrel just make it more finicky? Anyone else have similar problems? Thanks in advance for the feedback.
