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?
HA!

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

Nothing is ever guaranteed that it's a "drop-in" fit.
THere will always be a need to bust out the needle files and sandpaper and polish ....and...beer...andd..bison burgers.

It's one thing to buy parts. It's another thing to fit them in PROPERLY...
