For some reason my previous thread on this subject was deleted, and I'm not sure why. This is to replace that thread. Basically I purchased a used Lorcin L32 (.32 Automatic) for very little money. I decided that I'm going to see what I can do to try and help this little gun work more smoothly. This brand of firearm has has tons of problems and has a very bad reputation with the firearms community due to reliability problems and reports of either excessive jamming or possible kabooms. I already shot this gun once (100 rounds) and it functioned fine for 98 of those rounds. It was comfortable to hold and didn't recoil much (won't get much recoil out of a 32). Results will vary with these things as good quality control was never a strong point with any of the makers of these saturday night specials (Davis, Bryco, Jennings, Lorcin, etc...). There are some real lemons floating around that no amount of tinkering will help. The biggest thing is to check for good structural condition first if you ever want to purchase one of these types of firearms for whatever reason. This is a pic of where I'm at right now. I've done tons of polishing/smoothing around the barrel, magazine, firing pin channel, and around all of the contact surfaces between the slide and frame. The magazine had a surprising number of burrs that needed to be smoothed, and was extremely dirty. I also paid close attention to the fee ramp. I polished the feed ramp and removed all of the old paint that was on it. A painted feed ramp seems to be common on cheaper guns and I think that's one of the culprits of multiple jamming issues. Once I get a chance to get to the range again, I'll see if all of that made any difference.
