    I got the gun back from DW last week and when I field stripped it, I noticed the breech had "tool" marks on it. I'm not an expert but I'm pretty sure it is not supposed to look like this.

    Those pics are about as good as the service you've gotten from DW.

    Karl.. Does the ejector look like it's been cut? The location of the mark on the breechface would be more in-line with a "tool" slipping off the ejector.. Not that it helps anything.. Ron

    BWHAHAHAHA! TRUE, TRUE!

    Karl, do you have the means, caliper, to measure the width of that BF? If so I'll measure one today for you on a caspian slide so you can compare...

    Even in those pics, it looks like a nasty scratch that should NOT be there.

    Problem is it didn't develop, DW repair did it, then sent it back like that

    Sounds like a new slide might be needed.

    What did it originally go back for?

    Jamming, came back worse. I sent an e-mail to the Pres of CZ, today got a return label to ship it to CZ and not DW. So well see what happens with that.
