Well one of them also got a metal slide from different manufacturer, shooters design.
Guess what, hes having identical problems all the way...

Would a steel outer barrel make most our troubles dissappear?

If I had a nickel for everytime I heard that....

Nothing is ever guaranteed that it's a "drop-in" fit.
