Old Gun, Lower Lugs Damaged?

Post by Tim:H11 on 4/13/2017, 8:57 am

I have on loan to me my mentors fathers Pistol. Upon taking it apart to clean it I noticed the lower lug on the barrel is fouled up. What is happenenig? The gun shoots very well and recoil in minimal. Very nice shooter. A little slow chambering the first round off the top of a 5 shot mag. But it works. And mag springs are heavy so it could be a separate issue.

Will keep getting worse. More you shoot the more it will batter. Every shot fired!
