???
I havent been around much lately, but this seems to be the hot topic around here as of late.
I quess the prob is happening around the guise rod hole, but I am not exactly sure what to look for
:-[ I have some "texture" around hole, but amlost certain it's from when i had it refinished my Mac. Just want to make sure I didnt have something covered up, as most of my rounds were pre refininsh, w/ only a few here and there since.
Mine is HPH7*, but had replacement slide around March, 06.

Re: Can someone please better explain "peenin

The problem guns/slides appear to have been made between this past August and February. Iindications are that it was probably a fairly small percentage of them. You are good to do. 8)

+1 to all above about not worrying fish....

I also think the "problem" is probably fixed.

Here is a photo of my bad slide:



Here is a photo of a very good..makes me drool slide that most of us wish we had.



Your slide should appear flat on the front of the slide at the guide rod hole. A small raised ridge, I think, is not a cause for alarm.

Re: Can someone please better explain "peenin

Mine has a very small raised ridge on one side, near the top, I think. So, I should have no cause for concern?? I was thinking about going ahead and adding some of those washers just to prevent it from getting any worse. (My gun is about a year and half old, BTW.)

Re: Can someone please better explain "peenin

adamky. My slide is 7 months old and displayed the same condition after 300-450 rds. I just tapped it flat with a brass hammer and personally, I am gonna shoot it as is, and when it has a big "pucker" or ring around the hole that makes it likely that the inner spring is due to come out, I will send it in It is not a catastropic failure,even if it happens. Watch it and see its growth progress.I wonder if the washer is a fix, or a delay

Those of us that use them, if I knew anyone that fit that description...have been heard to say it is a temporary fix until we can be assured KT really has straightened things out. Although I have to wonder how many will just leave the washer in and never worry about it after that.

I carry my 3AT as a self defense weapon. If the spring popped out when I needed that 2nd or 7th shot, I would consider that CATASTROPIC FAILURE!

And if I died, hopefully my wife would agree. But then again, she maybe the one shooting at me. ;D
