STI Trojan - Galling in frame rail

Recommended Posts

I recently picked up an STI Trojan from Dawson Precision. I’ve shot one match with it. Probably less than 250 rounds total through the gun. 

 

I noticed the the slide was a little stiff and thought it was the disconnector catching on the slide. I disassembled the gun and noticed what looks like galling on the right frame rail.

 

Has anyone ever seen this on an STI? I read about this happening on stainless guns in the past. 

 

I’ll be calling Dawson in the morning.

No, I haven’t heard of an STI galling. I don’t think they make stainless guns. That does look pretty rough though. Maybe some grit got in there somehow?

Do you keep it well lubed? Looks pretty dry now, but I expect you cleaned it for the picture.

Yes, I cleaned it. I had hoppes oil on the rails, but I guess it didn't provide enough lubrication. I’ll be using slide glide from now on. I never thought the slide and frame would seize with hoppes oil.  

 

STI does not make stainless guns to my knowledge.
