If you think flakes of powder are jamming things up try flushing with HOS. It will wash out lot of dirt, just squirt in any opening you can find.
Loosening up a bit, but Davidson's got back to me and said to return the gun to my retailer and they will either repair or replace at my discretion. It now locks up every 8th or so round.I'm thinking may powder is lodged in the cylinder latch. I am going to take another look before I send it back.
FYI I got an email from Davidson's and they said to return the gun to the retailer and say whether I want a new one or have it repaired. Great news.I got it because of my good luck with the Pro Series revolvers I purchased. I hope Davidson's stays by their promise. Never had to return a gun to them before.
As do I for the past four years. I use Federal aluminum in 45 and 40 as well a 9mm in matches because they don't let you pick up your brass. Its kind of funny that I practice with brass but shoot aluminum in matches. Too bad you can't get it in 380.I've shot thousands of rounds of that aluminum Federal through my semi-autos with no problem. Weird.
I just sold a 929 Saturday. Had it about 8 months. Never a problem with ammo, trigger or accuracy. Loved shooting it. BUT!It is very disappointing that a gun from S&W's performance center has issues right out of the box.At the price of their PC guns one would expect that it would at least live up to the PC moniker.It seems that the customer has become the quality control person.I thought these guns were given more attention to workmanship and finish but i've also seen a friends PC gun have issues out of the box.Unacceptable.
I don't know of any current 10mm revolvers. When the 610 first came out and then disappeared I kicked myself for not getting one. Once S&W re-issued it, I jumped on one. I can't figure out why they quit making it again.I had wanted one, but 10mm is not a available or as cheap as 9mm or 45. Also, I don't believe anyone makes 10mm revolvers anymore.
