if the metal can get hot enough from shooting to "soften" the metal in the slide, trust me, you wouldn't be able to hold in your hand as it would be way too hot. besides most of the heat is concentrated in the barrel, not the slide.

OP, if you look at the top of the barrel area near the chamber, it looks like that are is rough and needs to be smoothed with some emory cloth. the pistol is an economy pistol used for SD, not long shooting sessions or lots of target shooting. these pistols are not high on the list of quality firearms, but intended to be better than nothing if needed. if possible, try and save up and buy a higher quality pistol if you want to do a lot of shooting. you can even buy very good pistols used for a decent price if you shop around and there are many knowledgeable members here who will be glad to help with your choice.

It was either that or the metal is do soft a .22 case will burr the slide up like that. We tried destroying my friends and fired about 400 rounds through it out of a box of 550. To our surprise the slide swelled now it functions flawlessly.

it didn't "swell", it got broke in. meaning the mating surfaces and grooves wore themselves to fit from repeated firing. brass cases are much softer than steel or least they better be if you plan on shooting ammo through a pistol. and if you look at the second set of pictures you will notice that there are burrs at the top of the barrel near the chamber area which correspond with the marks on the slide. it needs to be cleaned up with either a very fine file or emory cloth.

I seen the burrd on his. I checked mine after firing it and didn't see any burrs. I will try to get to my friends house and take photos of his pistol where the slide is about a 1/8 larger than it started out being.

did you measure it before shooting, then afterwards? do realize how much difference there is in an 1/8" measurement when it comes to the slide rails? at an 1/8" difference the slide would fall off the pistol!

I am probably off but it was a notable difference in the width of the slide from start to finish. Before we fired the slide was real right when we finished you could shake it and notice a lot of free travel.

look, believe whatever you want to, doesn't mean a thing to me whether you understand firearms or how mechanical items create a wear pattern and break in together or not. seems to me you have quite a bit to learn before you start offering advice or suggestions which you really have not a clue as to what you are talking about.

I know this it is not a expensive firearm. The jeminez I own has the one spot that looks like it has been melted. Not clawed up from a burr. I will post pics when I can and you decide.

who's pistol is it? first you stated it was your friends pistol and now you are saying it's your pistol. is this one pistol or do both of you have the same pistol with the same problem?

i said before, you don't seem to know much about firearms and it seems to me that you need to learn a little more first before making suggestions and giving advice. please refrain from giving advice or suggestions unless you know what you are talking about as it leads those who are trying to learn in the wrong direction with incorrect information.

We both have the same pistol mine had the problem. His after about 400 rounds, the slide expanded during the time we were firing, it now functions fine, no hang ups, no jams the reason I said heat was because of the discoloration of his pistol. I know how a pistol functions. Wear is caused by the two metals rubbing together, whichever its the strongest of the metals shows less wear . We are also talking about a cheaply made gun, that wears faster than other guns. I should have made myself more clear on the point.
