Thanks

I should have looked where the spent shell casings were falling. I'll do that next time. I already installed the 16 lb. spring.

Failure to feed due to too heavy recoil spring?

Stay safe, all.

Discontinued S&W Traditional DA Auto's

Good Day,

Just a minute ago I thought about the older S&W traditional double action auto's that revert to single action after one shot is fired from the hammer-down position. I miss those and wish...
