The current plan is to shoot it as is, but clean the chamber better. That's for a few reasons.

Took the Model 41 (with red dot) to the range yesterday. It grouped as well as my old eyes and body would allow. But in 60 rounds of several year old CCI Std VEL ammo, I had 3 failures to eject...

So maybe the cracked frames are a bit more prevalent than we thought (200 replaced by Hi Std TX in 5 years!). And the cause may be no heat treatment at all in a common steel (1045)? Would a more...
