I just received my "new" 10mm. S&W 1006. Gun is in great shape but...appears there was some mods done to feed ramp?

The previous owner has told me it is as he bought it and he had no FTF or FTE in the 200 rounds or so he put through it.

There is a upside-down "T" on the trigger guard...Does this mean anything?



Can someone please post a picture of their S&W 1006 barrel and chamber.




Looks like the feed ramp has had pizz poor polishing job? Also appears chamber mouth has been recessed and I am a little worried that they went "too far" and created an "un-supported chamber".



I took a shell casing and place in chamber and then scribed a line on the case at the angle of the feed ramp where it enters the chamber. Then I removed case and measure from the case head to scribed line...measures .230.


Can anyone measure their chamber support. I do not want to shoot any hot loads out of this gun unless I know the chamber support has NOT been comprimised.

It also makes me wonder WHY someone would modify 1006 as they are supposed to be trouble free pistols.

Compared to my 1006 your feed ramp has definetly been polished, I won't commment on the quality of the job.

I don't have pictures for you but it does appear that some material has been removed from the feed ramp and the beveled area on both sides of it. It even looks like a small dremel mark in the 7or8 o'clock position of the barrel in your photos. My caliper measurement from the scribed line to the case head was .200. I have no idea if the three hundreths is enough to cause problems but it certainly causes some concern with me.

As far as the upside-down T on the trigger guard, mine has an upside down U, I don't know what it is there for.
