Czechbikr - sure didn't want to "like" your post - we definitely need an "acknowledged" button. Sounds like a horrible range trip! What a pain in the pat-toot! Gosh knows what the gunsmith will have to do to get the round out!
My dear old PT58 had a problem where the slide would not come off at all!! I was lucky, tho' as there was no round in it at the time. How does one even walk off the firing line with something like that stuck in the pistol????After a call down to Miami, it got sent on a vacation trip where they did all sorts of stuff to it and replaced springs and even the grips - and now it works and looks real pretty!
