...the 66-1's were known to have somewhat brittle SS.
Brittle SS? Are you sure you're not talking about the chrome on the hammer and trigger?

The chrome used on the hammers and triggers of early M66's was too soft and tended to gall with use, causing the lockwork to bind, most noticeably when shooting DA. This is a somewhat well-known problem with the early guns.
