I took the OP's comment about stainless steels not matching up to be a reference to galling.

You are correct that the solution for galling was found years ago and should not be an issue in modern firearms--I just don't know when that solution was implemented by S&W. The OP's pistol is from the '80s and although my hunch is that it was settled by then, I don't know for sure and I can't find any definitive information on the topic.

The nice thing is that the solution for galling shouldn't hurt the gun even if galling isn't a problem with that model.
