    only thing Springfield had on the paper that came back with it, it said refit Barrel. They removed a tiny bit of metal from the lugs on the barrel, that's the only thing that looks different. Still not understanding how that was causing the slide to jam up. remember sometimes it wouldn't happen until I racked the slide to 10 to 20 times, then it would get stiff and stick.

    Give it a good workout and see if it is any better. I got about 2000 .45's ready to shoot. I share.
