    if they have a problem with the hammer safety.

    sorry didn't look at the whole thread.
    it looks almost like the barrels (where they broke)
    are cast. still in a revolver? there's not really any signifigant
    pressure due to the space between the cylinder
    and the forceing cone?
    overtightened barrel? tell me i'm wrong, i'm open.

    Two piece barrels, and they aren't holding up. Whatever pressure IS in the barrel WOULD be there in the choke point, too, although no one has been hurt yet. 1.5M bucks, and NC wants it back! I don't blame them. Never liked sleeved barrels, which is why I don't like Springfield 1911s, either. If you have one, look at the barrel top, in the ejection port,scary, huh?
