I’ve removed channel liners for melonite and cerakote. Always replaced with new OEM.
Never heard of a steel liner. Why would anybody want a steel channel liner in a plastic gun?
And why would anyone fall for aftermarket crap that is not needed in the 1st place?
Pay a premium because it's there, someone made it, or "I have to have it because what their site says and got good reviews". Junk like that.
Also, how would you even remove a thin metal liner if it's a tight fit? The OEM plastic comes out easy, but of course you'd have to slip a new one in. A $1-$2 part.
So, another "problem" that was actually operator error. Before replacing (trigger, slide, barrel, rsa, etc), remove OEM part first.,,....
With that liner you know have your metal firing pin spring riding on stainless steel. Stainless steel is soft and gummy and is going to gall over time. Glock actually got it right when they had the channel liner made out of polymer. Your money and your choice.
It would actually be the spring cups that are riding on stainless steel.
No offense but I don't see the need for this "improvement"
You could buy 3 oem polymer liners and polish them if you really think they need improving for much less money. I don't see what benefit the stainless steel has. Stainless steel *can* rust - the polymer wont.
