PM40- Is this normal wear?
Hey everybody, I picked up a new PM40 last week and I put 150 rounds through it today.
There were no major issues, outside of a few FTF, but I'll blame that on the ammo this time. I ran a box of Winchester white box without issue, but Reminton UMC had 4-5 FTFs out of 100.
On to the question: Is this a "normal" amount of extractor wear?
Would I cause any damage by sanding/polishing this down?
New to handguns - Is this normal wear?
Picked up a new 40 cal subcompact last week and put 150 rounds through it. I used a box of Winchester whitebox without issue and 2 boxes of Remington UMC (4-5 FTF out of 100).
When cleaning, I noticed these marks. Is this normal, I've shot several guns and don't remember similar markings. It looks like spent casings were contacting the front upper portion of the slide and the barrel is smacking the hell out of the slide.
My aim is usually pretty consistant (always decent grouping), but I couldn't get a group out of this thing at 25yds to save my life.
I'm ashamed to post that. Is it me, or is it the gun?
