Bought a bad one? Colt New Service
Posted as a new thread
I have been sitting on a New Service that I bought several years ago. It is rechambered to .45 Colt, probably from .455, also refinished. The action is tight, and I thought I was getting a good shooter. I made up some light loads with 230s, and they locked up the cylinder. same with factory 250s. I think the chambers are loose enough to allow the cases to set back against the breech. The case heads are binding against the breech face, and locking up the cylinder. I am thinking that I am SOL. Any ideas?
