Ok so I got my semi fit barrel in the other day.
I took my time and fitted it to the pistol. Only fitting I needed to do was the overall length to get it to go into battery. I filed this portion until it would go into battery and take a finger push to get it to release from battery.
Barrel was a snug fit in the slide installing the barrel but once in it moves freely. I'm not having to beat it in it just needs to be just right for it to slip in there, if that makes sense.
Anyways so the m&p functioned as normal and just slightly hung up out of battery if you ride the slide forward. Most of the time it hangs then releases itself into battery. If not it takes a hair of finger to get it to go into battery. After watching the video's that was what was considered to be a good tight fit and what I was after.
Well tested the barrel and function today and I was both excited and worried.
The barrel shot extremely well with some new ammo I have so I was estatic about that.
as the pistol gets hot the slide acts hung up closed. The pistol still shoots etc just fine and cycles minor pf loads but it takes all of my grip to grab the slide and rack it back. There is no unusual pressure once it frees battery it's just getting it to that point.
Anyways has anyone else experienced this???
My gut says I need to take a file stroke or two maybe off the oal of the hood so it doesn't bind when it gets hot and expands fractionally.
But before I did anything like removing material I wanted to check here.
Please chime in if you had this info or with how much force it takes to get your barrel to drop from battery with your semi fit barrel. When the slide is disassembled and barrel installed and at battery it takes just a little finger pressure to get it drop of battery, cold.......
