Yikes sorry to hear that !I agree on the aluminum frame assessment. I have an aluminum framed gun back at another maker with what I hope isn't that problem. It locked up simply cycling steel true weight snap caps to test whether a stronger recoil spring would remedy the pistol's repeated FTRB's, and I didn't dare use the type of force necessary to get it free; I figured, let their gunsmiths do it and take care of whatever resultant damage to the pistol. Hopefully, a new barrel will get you back in the game soon!
Yes as my friend pointed out last evening I have other pistols to shoot matches with but when you have 25k down the pipe it becomes an extension of you my times last night went from low 13 seconds raw all the way to 16.5-17 seconds raw - huge difference there 😬 I was using a Sentinel and I missed everything couldnt hit the broad side of a barn at 17 yards with it . 14 points down on one array 😳. I was averaging 2 PD with the EB and had very fast times .
