S&W 1006 Owners...

I just received my "new" 10mm. S&W 1006. Gun is in great shape but...appears there was some mods done to feed ramp?

The previuos owner has told me it is as he bought it and he had no FTF or FTE in the 200 rounds or so he put through it.

There is a upside-down "T" on the trigger guard...Does this mean anything?



Can someone please post a picture of their S&W 1006 barrel and chamber.

Looks like the feed ramp has had pizz poor polishing job? Also appears chamber mouth has been recessed and I am a little worried that they went "too far" and created an "un-supported chamber".



I took a shell casing and place in chamber and then scribed a line on the case at the angle of the feed ramp where it enters the chamber. Then I removed case and measure from the case head to scribed line...measures .230.


Can anyone measure their chamber support. I do not want to shoot any hot loads out of this gun unless I know the chamber support has NOT been comprimised.

It also makes me wonder WHY someone would modify 1006 as they are supposed to be trouble free pistols.

That barrel is wrecked, likely due to a dremel owner trying to correct feeding problems brought about due to worn/aged magazine and recoil springs.

corey,

Don't throw that Smith in the trash just yet.
Looking at those pictures I thought that the barrel looked ruined also. Out of curiosity, I took apart my 1006 to have a look and saw that the barrel was relieved in those areas from the factory. From the looks of your pictures it does appear that a dremel was used to do some polishing. The transition into the chamber from the feedramp appears to be rounded off but it doesn't seem that the barrel is totally ruined.
Notice in your lower picture where the relieved portion going into the chamber on the sides is more square than at the bottom? Just imagine that crisp line going around the bottom of the chamber from one side to the other (factory barrel relief going into the chamber is more squared than rounded) and that is about how much material has been removed.
I put a scribe mark at .230 from the back of a case and slid it into the chamber of my barrel and it barely disappeared in the chamber, maybe .010 deeper.
It's a little difficult to tell from pictures but if I were you, I'd shoot it and keep an eye out for any bulging in the lower chamber area on the casings. It doesn't look as if it's so far out of spec. to cause any major problems.
Just in case though, touch the first rounds off from behind a barracade with a long string attached to the trigger. :D
