My read as well

I took the OP's comment about stainless steels not matching up to be a reference to galling.
That is my read as well and if so, I suggest contact S&W for assist. I wish I could recall the particular grade of SS that will gall the same type or others. Not related to firearms but I have seen this happen on mechanical parts. The galling can be very serious and "quickly" apparent with very negative results. Firearms related, I have some after-market SS magazines that would gall in the SS well. worked just fine, in a carbon steel well. .....

I own a 659 for many years(since the 80s
Same here and no issues .......

Be Safe !!!
