I bought the blued model - they didn't have a stainless steel model in stock. I took it to the range (after the usual thorough cleaning and lubing) for the first time, but was running about 12-15% FTF with PMC 230-gr FMJ. I'm going to have to borrow a Dremel and buffing wheel from somebody and do a buff and fluff on the feed ramp. Need to do that relatively soon too because I received my order of several types of SD ammo that I need to test. If it's having trouble feeding FMJ round nose, I don't even want to consider what it would or wouldn't do with JHPs!Nice pair of pistols. Did you give any thought to an all-blued PT, or do you simply like stainless?
