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.

I've never had any problems with my G23's Storm Lake barrel.

Thanks for the reply...

I sent barrel in and they (you) said it was a problem with the feed ramp- it was "reworked" and sent back to me. Only put about 50 rounds of ammo through it (same ammo that had problems previously), and it seems to work fine now. My only complaint is that I am a technical guy and would have liked a more detailed and technical explanation of the actual problem and solution- but hey, it seems to work now so what the heck.
